Rogers (Oslo) and director Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) are behind the project, which follows "Jake's (Elgort) daily descent into the neon soaked underbelly of Tokyo, where nothing, and no one is truly what or who they seem. Elgort's Jake Adelstein is an American journalist who embeds himself into the Tokyo Vice police squad to reveal corruption." John Lesher, Emily Gerson Saines and Ansel Elgort will also executive produce for Endeavor Content. (Deadline.com)
