TOM HOPPER JOINS THE CAST OF UMBRELLA ACADEMY

We are thrilled to announce that Tom Hopper will be joining the cast of Netflix’s highly anticipated adaptation of Gerard Way’s graphic novel Umbrella Academy.

Umbrella Academy follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes (aka the Umbrella Academy): The Monocle, Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Séance, Number Five, The Horror and The White Violin. Together, they work to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams because of their divergent personalities and abilities. The series was praised for its alternate and twisted take on the superhero genre.

Tom Hopper will be playing the role of Luther, aka Spaceboy, who was groomed by his father from an early age to be the leader of the Umbrella Academy — a responsibility that has always weighed heavily on him. He is resilient, a workaholic and possesses the ability of heightened physical strength. Upstanding to a fault, Luther always tries to do the right thing, even if that means putting others before himself.

Steve Blackman (Fargo, Netflix’s Altered Carbon) will serve as showrunner and executive produce alongside Bluegrass Television and Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg from Dark Horse Entertainment. Produced by Universal Cable Productions, Umbrella Academy creator Gerard Way (of the rock band My Chemical Romance) will co-exec produce. The pilot script was adapted from the comic book series by Jeremy Slater (The Exorcist). The 10-episode drama is set to launch in 2018.

When word reaches La Belle that Griffin is headed their way, the town bands together to defend against the murderous gang in a lawless western frontier
