Movies In Focus had been looking forward to M.Night Shyamalan’s Tales From The Crypt reboot – but it looks like I’m going to have to wait a little longer. A hell of a lot longer in fact!
In an interview with Deadline, TNT president Kevin Reilly stated the show is now dead due to right issues – and it has now been replaced by a new Ridley Scott produced sic-fi series:
“That one got really caught up in a complete legal mess unfortunately with a very complicated underlying rights structure. We lost so much time, so I said, ‘Look, I’m not waiting around four years for this thing’. Maybe that will come back around but in the meantime, Ridley Scott had come up, who has so much creative enthusiasm.”
Sad news indeed – and very strange considering that they went so far as to make this teaser trailer for the series:
