Producer Frank Spotnitz ("The Man In The High Castle") will develop the "Warhammer 40,000" novels by Dan Abnett, into a live-action TV series with Big Light Productions and Games Workshop:

"'Gregor Eisenhorn' is a relentless force in the dark future of the 'Warhammer' universe," said Abnett. "But the appeal to me, from the moment I started writing him, was his complexity.
