David S. Goyer Developing ‘The Black Company’ for Television, Starring Eliza Dushku

David S. Goyer’s Phantom Four, Boston Diva Productions and IM Global Television are currently developing a television series based off of Glen Cook’s The Black Company. Eliza Dushku, who founded Boston Diva Productions, is expected to star in the series.

Deadline summarizes The Black Company quite simply:

The series follows the exploits of the Black Company, an elite mercenary unit that carries out the often nefarious deeds of the highest bidder across a Tolkeinesque landscape. When these hard-bitten men discover the prophecy that the embodiment of good has been reborn, they must re-examine their loyalties. The Lady (Dushku), who rules over the Northern Empire, uses the Black Company to further her domination of a power structure rife with usurpers.

Assuming this continues to move forward, it’s a pretty exciting announcement.
