Makeup master Greg Nicotero (“The Walking Dead”) is the man behind next year’s return of “Creepshow,“ which will be taking the form of a television series on Shudder. At the New York Comic Con over the weekend, Nicotero spilled some exciting new details about the project.
As relayed by Horror News Network, some HUGE names will be part of “Creepshow,” including both Stephen King and son Joe Hill, as well as Bubba Ho-Tep writer Joe R. Lansdale!
The site reported out of NYCC, “Nicotero stressed that the tone of the series would shift from story-to-story, with some taking a lighthearted comedic approach and others taking a much more frightening path. He also stated that each story would be ‘As long as they need to be’ and that he did not feel any pressure to fit the stories into segments of equal length.”
“Nicotero also revealed that the current plan is to produce digital comics based on each episode, as a potential perk for Shudder subscribers. He also hopes that they are collected into actual comics, which he believes is still the proper way to read comics.”
A homage to the horror comics of the 1950s, the original Creepshow featured segments written by Stephen King and was directed by a fellow horror legend, George A. Romero.
Creepshow. Glad to be a part of it. https://t.co/yCSueGLMYh
