The producer of the series Legion would work on an adaptation of the video game Alan Wake
If the adaptations of video game movies and series are never past fashion, we are still waiting for the work that will put everyone in agreement. And we say that with Alan Wake, it could be a serious challenger…
Released in 2010, Alan Wake had already been long-awaited by fans of the developer Remedy (which is already extraordinary series, Max Payne). And if, in the end, the game was still a lot of defects, it was a fabulous adventure into a world at the crossroads between the X-Files, Twin Peaks and Stephen King.
We incarnions so Alan Wake, a novelist to success, which settled in a small town with his wife when he was reached of the syndrome of the white page. Things strange are not slow to occur, his wife disappears and Alan is forced to confront the dark to hope to find it. An adventure parallel was also output in 2012, American Nightmare, but had no direct effect on the general plot. And since we are expecting the following.
Alan Wake, a writer who spends a dirty night
If you are talking about all this, this is not only for the pleasure to talk about the love game that is Alan Wake , but because we have come to learn through the website of Variety that the game could soon be the subject of an adaptation in the tv series. In fact, Peter Calloway, the producer of the series Cloak and Dagger and Legion would come to sign a contract appointing him as showrunner of the project, in co-production with Contradiction Films, and the developer Remedy Entertainment.
If the project will make the round of the studios from the month of October to find a buyer, the pitch of Calloway would have already conquered Sam Lake, the creator of the game and two-three potential funders have expressed an interest. Here’s where it gets interesting is when we think back to the structure of the game Alan Wake, cut in episodes of tv series.
Because of this, the format would be more or less already established a point-of-view narrative, the interactivity in the least of course. But the future of the series would not only adapt the first adventure of the writer sinceit also contains elements of the following which we no longer have any new.
It is time therefore to listen to the Old Gods of Asgards and to pray for success of the project. Frankly, it would be class.
