Rogue Trooper first look

Director Duncan Jones (Moon) has shared a teaser image from his upcoming animated adaptation of Rogue Trooper. The Unreal Engine 5 feature film stars Aneurin Barnard (Doctor Who) as the eponymous Rogue Trooper, Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) and Jack Lowden (Slow Horses).

Read the official synopsis:

"Rogue Trooper tells the story of 19, a ‘Genetic Infantryman', who finds himself the sole-survivor of an invasion force. Desperate to track down the traitor who sold him and his comrades out, the super soldier is accompanied by three killed-in-action squad mates, whose personalities have been stored in his gun, helmet and rucksack."

Jones said of the film and the acclaimed British comic: "2000 AD offers a very different flavour of comic action: Political and brutal at times, but always with a Pythonesque twinkle in the eye. Dredd (2012) was a taste of what 2000 AD has to offer and now we get to show the world another side of the beast. It is a genuine privilege to be given the opportunity to make Rogue Trooper."

As a child, along with Marvel UK titles Doctor Who Weekly and Star Wars Weekly, I avidly read 2000 AD: Rogue Trooper, created by Gerry Finley-Day and Dave Gibbons, was one of my favourite characters.

Rebellion CEO, Jason Kingsley CBE, will be a producer on Rogue Trooper alongside Jones, Stuart Fenegan and Chris Kingsley. He added: "We are thrilled to be working with Duncan Jones, who is a fellow British creative visionary and 2000 AD fan with global reach. Rogue Trooper highlights Rebellion's leading position within the entertainment industries. It has been filmed at our dedicated Oxfordshire film studios and combines beautiful storytelling from our iconic 2000 AD comic book universe with animation and production technology from the video game industry. We cannot wait for everyone to see these incredible stories bought to life on screen."

Rogue Trooper will be released in 2025.
