Comic-Con ’11: Eerie and Creepy TV Series?

Twin producers Dan and Josh Braun (American History X) just announced at the San Diego Comic-Con that they’re developing “Eerie” and “Creepy” into a TV series with Chris Columbus (Goonies, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) getting behind the camera.

They also say that Ti West (The Roost, House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter) and Mark Duplass (Baghead) are potentially directing episodes under the newly launched Creepy Studios banner.

Creepy and Eerie, which were released by Warren Publishing in the 1960s, reached the peak of their popularity in the 1970s. They focused on macabre and otherworldly stories in the manner of “Tales From the Crypt” and “The Twilight Zone.” Their success even prompted comics giants DC and Marvel to launch horror titles.
