We’re just a few days away from the launches of both AppleTV+ and Disney+, but there is still at least one more major player waiting to enter the streaming wars after those two: HBO Max.

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has hired Jeremy Passmore (Red Dawn) and Andre Fabrizio to write the script for an action thriller called DMZ, which is set in the tense zone between North and South Korea.
