5 Reasons Why Netflix Greenlit Blake Crouch’s ‘Recursion’ Adaptation Nine Months Prior to Publication

Netflix loves a good story— the type of tale prone to promoting negligence in those who are supposed to be doing something productive over the course of an 8 to 12 hour period. So it’s no wonder the streaming superpower decided to adapt Blake Crouch’s new novel, Recursion, nine months before it ever even hit the shelf. Fresh off his New York Times bestseller Dark Matter (also being turned into a movie), Crouch continues his revved-up, heart palpitating wordsmithing with Recursion. With the upcoming Recursion universe (planned film and subsequent series), Netflix has decided to take full advantage of Crouch’s cinematic flair and rising fan base. Here are 5 reasons why Recursion will rock our screens.
