After several years of being absent from the TV screen, M. Night Shyamalan has confirmed that he is currently working on a remake of the famous 90s series, “Tales From the Crypt.” Shyamalan also revealed that a new crypt keeper will be featured onscreen as well.
As reported by Movie Plot, Shyamalan was promoting the second season for his Fox series entitled “Wayward Pines” when he hinted of a “Tales from the Crypt” revival series. He said, “You know, I can’t say 100% but I’m thinking right now, where I am, if you’d asked me this six months ago, I would have a different answer, but where I am right now it’s more individual ‘Black Mirror’ kind of stuff right now.”
This was Shyamalan’s way of telling the audience that a tremendous change in the show’s narrator, the zombie-like corpse, will happen. In other news, Cinema Blend reported that the gruesome yet hilarious corpse-like narrator of the series will not come back to the latest franchise. John Kassir, the voice of the character, revealed that he had not been contacted by the makers of the show to reprise his role.
Furthermore, it was also speculated that the new addition to the franchise may be more technologically enhanced compared to the original one.
At present, there has been no official announcement as to when “Tales from the Crypt” would start shooting nor when it will release on TNT. However, thanks to showrunner M. Night Shyamalan, the audience have something to look forward to – a new creepy face.
