Prophet is now in production with Jake Gyllenhaal attached to star in Prophet. Gyllenhaal will play the lead character known as John Prophet, a homeless and desperate man experimented on by the Germans in the final days of the Second World War, to turn him into a supersoldier. A last-minute change of heart by one of the scientists that were experimenting on him, puts Prophet into a cryosleep that he awakened from years later.

The original series ran until 2000 and was revived in 2012 and took John Prophet to the far future. This run lasted until 2016, with the story of Prophet ending with a series called Prophet: Earth War that ran through 2016.
