Los Angeles, Apr 8 (PTI) Amazon has added five actors to the cast of its upcoming series 'The Peripheral'.

Gibson's book follows Flynne (Moretz) and her brother Burton (Reynor). In the novel, Burton, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps’ elite Haptic Recon force, is hired for a security job which takes place in what he thinks is cyberspace.

When Flynne temporarily takes his place, she witnesses something that might have been murder.

Greg Plageman will serve as the showrunner.

Executive producers are Smith, Vincenzo Natali, Nolan and Joy, Athena Wickham and Steven Hoban. PTI RB RB RB
