It’s been a hot minute since we heard anything at all regarding M. Night Shymalan’s Tales From the Crypt reboot for TNT; and the last we did hear on the project, is that it was stalled for an unspecified amount of time due to rights issues back on Christmas Eve. Yeah, it was like those crappy Christmas fruit cakes from your Great Aunt Angus in comparison with no matter how much you hated it, you had to swallow and deal with it.
Now, per BD, a pair of promos for the reboot, that was once considered the forbidden fruit of late night TV for boils and ghouls back in the early nineties, has surfaced shining an exciting light for what’s to come once production is in the clear to begin.
One clip looks to touch on the sort of atmosphere Shyamalan want’s to insert on his take of the HBO cult horror program, and it certainly looks promising with that M. Night touch.
The second promo features Shyamalan speaking candidly about how he envisions this rehash of Tales From the Crypt with the assurance that the Cryptkeeper will return to host your weekly tales of terror in a “dark Walt Disney” like fashion.
I’M READY. GIVE ME THE INTERRORTAINMENT!
The Split director’s reboot of Tales, when it finally gets back on track, is set to sit alongside TNT’s new horror block that also includes upcoming horror series titles Creatures, and Time of Death, with a scheduled 10-episodes for the planned anthology horror series that is aiming to for an air date in late 2017.
Now if this doesn’t get you excited, I’m not sure what will! Updates to come as we hear them!
