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 Calloways full pitch and that hes 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 Sams 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.
Alan Wake, which was released on the Xbox 360 and Windows PC in 2010, followed fictitious best-selling author Alan Wake (Matthew Porretta) on a journey to a small town in Washington state where he hopes to rid himself of prolonged writers block. What follows is an increasingly surreal experience that seems to bring the plot from his last novel which he has no memory of writing to life.
