Mickey 7 Posted in February by St. Martin, an imprint of Macmillan. While the film will be inspired by the novel, sources say that given Bong’s past experiences with adaptations, his version may end up being different from the novel. The story of the novel follows Mickey7, who is an expendable: a disposable employee on a human mission sent to colonize the ice world of Niflheim. Whenever there’s a mission that’s too dangerous—even suicidal—the crew turns to Mickey. After an iteration dies, a new body is reborn with most of its memories intact. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal…and why it was the only colonial position unfilled when he took it.
