In development since November 2013, The CW Network has officially ordered a pilot for their Tales from the Darkside reboot. Joe Hill, the author of Horns, Locke & Key and the son of celebrated novelist Stephen King, is writing the pilot script and executive producing alongside Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
The original horror anthology series, which was created by George A. Romero, ran for four seasons on CBS between 1984 and 1988. It was later adapted for the big screen in 1990's Tales from the Darkside: The Movie. Each episode of the show told an individual short story with a twist, in the same vein as other programs such as Amazing Stories, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits and Tales from the Crypt. The show typically stayed within the horror, science fiction, and fantasy genres, but certain episodes featured more dark comedy or lighthearted themes.
Barcelona-based Filmax, a Spanish production-distribution-sales force – especially in thrillers and horror fare from Spain’s seemingly bottomless well of new genre auteur talent – has acquired world sales rights to Gonzalo Bendala’s “Innocent Killers,” which it will also distribute domestically in Spain.
“Killers” will have its world premiere at March’s Miami Intl. Film Festival, playing in its Cinema 360º section.
Maxi Iglesias (“XP3D,” “Toledo”), Luis Fernandez (“XP3D,” “I Want You”) and Aura Garrido (“Stockholm,” “The Wishful Thinkers”) star in the murder imbroglio from Seville-based production house Aralan, which marks the feature directorial debut of Aralan partner Gonzalo Bendala.
“A suspenser, echoing elements of Hitchcock,” in the words of Aralan CEO Marta Velasco, “Killers” turns on a university student (Iglesias) who, in dire straits, suddenly receives an godsend offer of money – if he kills his psychology teacher (Miguel Angel Sola, “Night Runner”).
