Now he’s free to return to “Hannibal,” right? RIGHT?!
Created by Steven Spielberg, “Amazing Stories” premiered on NBC in September ’85, and it featured horror, sci-fi and fantasy tales directed by legends like Bob Clark, Joe Dante, Martin Scorsese, Tom Holland, Tobe Hooper, and even Spielberg himself.
We were excited to learn last year that Apple is rebooting “Amazing Stories” for modern audiences, with names like Bryan Fuller, Patton Oswalt, Kumail Nanjiani, Emily Gordon, and Jane Goldman in the writer’s room; Fuller (“Hannibal,” “American Gods”) was also attached as executive producer and showrunner.
Unfortunately, Fuller is now off the project. Via THR today, Fuller has exited “Amazing Stories” amid creative differences.
“The split is said to be amicable,” the site notes. “Fuller is said to have wanted to do a Black Mirror-type show, while the iPhone maker, sources say, wanted more family friendly fare.”
The reboot of “Amazing Stories” was originally set up at NBC before moving to Apple, and Fuller had been involved from the beginning.
Steven Spielberg, Frank Falvey and Hart Hanson are attached as producers.
