An “Alan Wake” live-action television series is in development with Peter Calloway (“Cloak and Dagger,” “Legion”) signed on as showrunner and writer, and game creator Sam Lake as executive producer, Contradiction Films and Remedy Entertainment told Variety.
Contradiction partner Tomas Harlan said the plan is to start shopping the show around in October with Calloway’s full pitch and that he’s already seen initial interest from a number of studios.
“‘Alan Wake’ was basically a TV series that was put into a game,” Harlan told Variety. “That was Sam’s vision. It was influenced by ‘The Twilight Zone,’ ‘Secret Window,’ Hitchcock, ‘Northern Exposure,’ a lot of U.S. television.
“We plan to work closely with Sam on our this show. Sam is a huge part of this. This is his baby.”
“Definitely what we have mapped out is a longer thing than the first game and a sequel; there is more to it,” Lake said. “In many ways, we see the universe as a bigger thing. Alan Wake is a very central character, but we have other characters around him like [friend and agent Barry Wheeler] and his wife Alice and Sheriff Sarah Breaker and other characters there.
We feel this is a big universe to develop and explore in many ways.”
Speaking with Variety this week, Harlan declined to talk specifics about the upcoming show’s plot or how it would fit into the existing games or the unmade sequel.
Peter Calloway (“Cloak and Dagger,” “Legion”) será showrunner y escritor. El mismo Sam Lake será productor ejecutivo y trabajará cerca del proyecto, que será una serie. Dice que aunque Alan Wake sea el protagonista el universo del juego tiene otros personajes y que es un gran universo que se puede explorar de muchas maneras. Ya hay interés inicial por parte de varios estudios.
Está claro que Remedy quiere hacer la secuela pero hay una que no suelta el money.
