Despite the commercial failure of Frank Darabont’s excellent adaptation of Stephen King’s supernatural novella The Mist (a modern genre masterpiece in my opinion which recently featured in our underrated King adaptations feature), it appears The Weinstein Company is working alongside the writer/director with a plan to bring the story to the small screen. Since its release back in 2007, Darabont’s film led by the brilliant Thomas Jane, has gone on to find an appreciated audience in much the same way as John Carpenter’s celebrated 1982 sci-fi horror classic The Thing.

The Oscar-nominated filmmaker of such classics as The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile and who is no stranger to television (having worked on The ShieldThe Walking Dead and currently gangster series Mob City) has proposed 10-part series. It’s currently unknown if this will be a retelling of the Dimension film; continues from that shocking »
