M. Night Shymalan’s Tales From the Crypt Reboot is ‘Dead’

M. Night Shymalan’s Tales From the Crypt reboot is ‘dead’

Bad news for horror fans. In an interview with Digital Spy (via Bloody Disgusting) director M. Night Shyamalan revealed that his Tales From the Crypt reboot is no longer happening.

“I think it’s dead,” he told the site. “We tried everything that we could. That was so mired in people that had rights to it… constantly mired from the original comic books to the people that did the original show and that was a very contentious era for that show and who was involved and all the stuff that had nothing to do with me, a generation before me.”

Shyamalan was working on the project with TNT, and planned to release Tales From the Crypt as part of the network’s horror block. In building the horror block, TNT had ordered a pilot for Time of Death (working title), a seasonal anthology series from IM Global Television. TNT had also begun development on Creatures, from Naegle Ink.

“I begged them, ‘Please just give me the rights, we’ll do it this way, you’re going to be really happy’,” Shymalan added. “But it didn’t work out that way and here we are.”

No word yet on the fate of the latter two series, but, alas, Tales From the Crypt looks to be buried back in the crypt once again.
