Alex Rider Heads To TV

Action, Adrenaline, Adventure. Three words that promise so much.  Three words that sum up the exploits of teen superspy, Alex Rider. Rider, created by Anthony Horowitz is the main protagonist of the Alex Rider novel series. When imagining Rider, Horowitz sought to create a much younger James Bond. On September 4, 2000, the first book released, Stormbreaker became a New York Times Best Seller.

Sony and British Producer, Eleventh Hour Films are adapting the second novel of the Alex Rider series to the big screen. The novel, Point Blanc is making the transition to the small screen via an eight-episode run.


The official website lists Riders’ Bond inspired bio as – “A few months after his birth, Alex’s parents were killed in a plane crash. Alex was then raised by his uncle, Ian Rider. They traveled widely, throughout the UK, Europe, and the Americas. Alex learned many of his skills on these trips, making him the perfect candidate for MI6. Alex has spent most of his life in a terraced house in Chelsea, London, Ian Rider’s home. The house is located between the King’s Road and the River Thames and is twenty minutes from Stamford Bridge. Nearby is Brompton Cemetery, where Ian Rider is buried. Alex presently resides at this address with his legal guardian, Jack Starbright.”

The book series has a large fanbase and is currently appearing in his eleventh book, Never Say Die. If that title isn’t a tip of the hat to our favorite 00 Agent. The novels are aptly titled, Stormbreaker (September 4, 2000), Point Blanc (September 3, 2001), Skeleton Key (July 8, 2002), Eagle Strike (April 7, 2003), Scorpia (April 2, 2004), Ark Angel (April 1, 2005), Snakehead (October 31, 2007), Crocodile Tears (November 12, 2009), Scorpia Rising (April 5, 2011), Russian Roulette (October 1, 2013), and Never Say Die (June 1, 2017.
