Via Variety, Stan Lee is set to create a new long-form audiobook for Audible. On Friday (July 21st) it was announced that Lee will teamed up with Ryan Silbert (“God of Love”) and Luke Lieberman (“Red Sonja”) “to narrate the introduction to the novel, which will introduce fans to a new universe, described as “Mr. Robot’ set in a John Hughes world.”
Lee stated, ““When Audible came to us with the idea of doing this as an audio project first, I thought it was inspired. The story is set within a culture of cutting-edge technology, so it deserves to be brought to audiences in a medium that truly captures the spirit of the universe, yet allows the listener to create their own, unique, mental picture of the story. What Audible is doing is truly groundbreaking, but it is also bringing us back to our roots.”
Audible chief content officer Andy Gaies said, “We are thrilled to bring the Stan Lee universe to life and to listeners in this unprecedented, written to the audio format endeavor with POW! Entertainment,” says Audible chief content officer Andy Gaies. “The immersive audio experience will excite and exhilarate all fans of Stan Lee’s work.”
Production on the project will begin shortly.
