First ordered to series in February, Neuromancer centers on Case (to be played by Turner), a damaged, top-rung super-hacker who, according to the official logline, is “thrust into a web of digital espionage and high-stakes crime with his partner Molly, a razor-girl assassin with mirrored eyes, aiming to pull a heist on a corporate dynasty with untold secrets.”

The role of Molly has yet to be cast.

Neuromancer, which will span 10 episodes in its first season, hails from co-creators Graham Roland (Dark Winds, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan) and J.D. Dillard (The Outsider, Two Sentence Horror Stories). Roland will serve as showrunner, while Dillard will direct the pilot episode.

In addition to Masters of the Air, where he played Maj. John “Bucky” Egan, Turner’s TV credits include Peacock’s The Capture and BBC One’s 2016 War & Peace miniseries. On the film side, he’s appeared in The Boys in the Boat, two Fantastic Beasts movies and 2020’s Emma.
