According to Hollywood Reporter former ‘Dexter’ alum Scott Buck is setting up shop to executive produce the fourth series on Marvels production slate for Netflix.
Iron Fist centres on Daniel Rand, who fights against the criminal elements corrupting New York City with his kung-fu skills and ability to summon the power of the fiery Iron Fist. The series picks up with Rand returning to the Big Apple after having gone missing for several years.
“Scott came in with a take on Iron Fist that quite simply knocked us off our feet,” Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb said in a statement. “We always look for the most creative minds in the field to help us bring our heroes to life, and with Scott we’ve found someone that can deliver yet another great series in the ongoing story of The Defenders.”
Added Buck: “I’ve always been drawn to writing complex, intriguing characters, and that’s what most excites me about the opportunity to bring Danny Rand and Iron Fist to life with Marvel on Netflix.”
‘Iron Fist’ is the latest chapter in the ongoing Defenders series that also includes Daredevil and ‘Jessica Jones’, which premiered last month on Netflix. Next up is Marvel’s ‘Luke Cage’, which will debut sometime in 2016 before ‘Iron Fist.’
This will be Scott Bucks first television work since things wrapped up on ‘Dexter’.
