‘Nightbreed’ Cabal Cut Nearing Blu-ray Distribution Deal? TV Show On The Way?

The last we’d heard about “Cabal Cut” of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed Morgan Creek had given the filmmakers permission “to show the cut around the world and to raise money to prepare the cut for a release on Blu-ray… This could not, would not, have happened without your voices.We have all been heard. The Morgan Creek team have my thanks and my respect. Very seldom does anyone in the movie business pay attention as they have, understanding perhaps that the message of the movie as I shot it is one that dramatizes a different ending to the age-old story of how a war between Humankind and something Other draws to a close.

Now Michael Plumides has posted in the comments section of the Occupy Midian Facebook, “Russell, you said you didn’t expect anything before 2014, remember? Well, it looks like the distribution deal is moving forward. Our distributors are presently at Cannes but we will resume talks when they return – we probably will not make the announcement until the Fall. Also we have a channel very interested in the TV show. Stay tuned.” It’s hard to suss out exactly what all of this means – especially the bit about the TV show – but at least the mood seems positive.

To clarify about Warner Bros. rights he added, “The Cabal Cut” is a separate film all together. Warner has no control over this film – the added footage makes it a completely different product.

Check out the review here. Also, keep checking with Occupy Midian website for updates.

    Oh my god. I thought this fell through. This news really turned my day around. I really cant wait for this. I do hope there will be tons of features on the bluray. Like a round table with the actors and just every thing they can find.

    Sweet, havent seen this since I saw the original in the theatre, what 25 years ago.

    Out of all the upcoming (planned) TV-shows that are based on horror movies, this makes the most sense.

      Absolutely it does!!! The things you could do!

      The comic series of Nightbreed crossed over with some AMAZING results with other Barker properties. In later seasons imagine if they had Rawhead Rex come in as an enemy to Midian and its denizens, trying to destroy it for a couple of episodes. What if for a season or two they hinted at the Cenobites? It wouldn’t even HAVE to be pinhead? They could use original cenobites for the show for the people of Midian to go up against… I love the possibilities for this show (granted none of that will happen but still.)

    I really hope this happens sooner than later. I also hope that the blu ray release includes both cuts. That’s only fair.

    I remember when ‘Nightbreed’ first came out it was supposed to have be a trilogy, I wonder what happened with those plans.
