Filming has wrapped on the all new reboot of George Romero and Stephen King’s Creepshow, and executive producer Greg Nicotero of the legendary KNB EFX Group was kind enough to share the first image of the show. Judging from the solitary moody image, it’s safe to say that the show is going to keep the original spirit of Creepshow alive – or undead, if you will.
The initial six episode run is set to premiere in Shudder and will feature the names of many iconic creators attached to the anthology, with Nicotero directing an episode himself. Joe Hill, son of Stephen King, has written an episode. Also attached to it is a story by Josh Malerman (Birdbox) and an unannounced story by King himself. Creepshow is set to premiere later in the year.
You can view the image via Instagram below, and if you aren’t already, make sure you are following Greg Nicotero on Instagram as he is often posting incredible horror-related content.
The great thing is that, at least thus far, it seems as if the wraparound segments featuring the Creep looks just like an updated version of the original movie. Sometimes it’s great to modernize things, but Creepshow’s charm comes from capturing the feel of early EC Comics. Personally, I wouldn’t like to see that go away, and Greg Nicotero has a great track record with overseeing things such as this.
