With that one, we were a good way through our process, but Netflix decided to kind of go in a different direction with that property. So we’re not involved anymore. We love James [Tynion IV], we love the source material, and we wish the absolute best for whoever ends up with it, but that one we’re not gonna move forward with. It’s a bummer.
