Homeland will be coming to Netflix soon.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings confirmed that the film will be arriving in 2018.
Hastings said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly that the movie will be a prequel to the series Homeland, which is based on the book The Run of His Life by Mark Leibovich.
The prequel is set after the events of the series and chronicles the life of a retired FBI agent who became an informant for the FBI.
Hastings explained the movie is an homage to the book, but with a new set of characters.
“Herman is a retired agent with an extraordinary story and a new generation of friends,” he said.
“We’re thrilled to work with Netflix to bring this amazing story to the streaming service.”
The movie is currently being produced by a group of writers including Jonathan Maberry and Adam Horowitz.
Netflix is also looking to acquire a series called The Run.
The new Homeland is based off of the book by Mark Lemley and Tom Clancy.
The book tells the story of a former FBI agent, whose life changes when he learns he is one of the first Americans to be captured in Vietnam.
He is subsequently sent to Iraq to work undercover as a private security contractor.
His wife is also sent to Vietnam to help him become a soldier, but soon finds herself in the middle of a battle that will change the lives of all who enter the country.
The film has already had a limited run, but will eventually be released to theaters and will be available on Netflix in 2018, Hastings said.
Netflix also recently purchased a new series called Deadline, a thriller about a high-ranking agent who has been killed by a rival.
Netflix will also be releasing a sequel to Deadline next year.
