Seems the TV and streaming services are the new in thing for the horror realm and to further cement that statement as truth comes word tonight that John Carpenter has inked a deal with Universal to develop his graphic novel anthology Tales For A Halloween Night into a show for SYFY Channel.
The show will be based on “Carpenter’s award-winning graphic novel anthology of stories where he brings together storytellers from the worlds of movies, novels, and comics for a collection of horror stories featuring graveyards, sunken ships, creepy crawlers and ghosts that will haunt your dreams long after you’ve finished reading.”
A writer is being sought for the project.
Also in development is Nightside based on the novel series by Simon R. Green. Jill Blotevogel has been attached to handle scripting duties. Nightside tells the tale of the “secret heart of London beating to its own rhythm, pumping lifeblood through the veins of its streets and alleys, hidden in eternal darkness where creatures of the night congregate and where the sun is afraid to shine. It’s the place to go if you’re looking to indulge the darker side of your nature—and to hell with the consequences.”
Should be much more info on this soon – so keep a close eye – updates as I get them!
