Supernatural Video Game Alan Wake Is Becoming A TV Show

Supernatural Video Game Alan Wake Is Becoming A TV Show

Contradiction has brought other videogame adaptations to life in the past, including projects like Mortal Kombat: Legacy and Dead Rising: Watchtower. Unfortunately, like a lot of ahead-of-the-time things, Alan Wake wasn't quite as successful as it could have been, but perhaps the concept will work better as a TV series. "That was Sam's vision".

Alan Wake still isn't getting the video game sequel that fans have spent years pining for, but Remedy Entertainment's paranormal adventure franchise will continue via another medium. It was influenced by "The Twilight Zone, ' 'Secret Window, ' Hitchcock, 'Northern Exposure, ' a lot of USA television".

"Definitely what we have mapped out is a longer thing than the first game and a sequel; there is more to it", said Lake.

'We plan to work closely with Sam on our this show. "We feel this is a big universe to develop and explore in many ways".

"The Alan Wake TV show is due to be shopped around to a number of studios by Contradiction Films partner Tomas Harlan in October, with Calloways" full pitch apparently already garnering interest from certain parties. Sam is a huge part of this.

"The story of the original game is our starting point, the seed which will grow into the bigger story we're exploring in the show", Lake said. Regardless of when it arrives (assuming it's picked up), having Sam Lake so intrinsically tied to the series gives me hope that this could turn out to be a great video game adaptation, unlike numerous others that we've seen in TV and film over the years. "We'll be expanding the lore of this insane and dark universe and diving deeper into certain aspects of it than the game ever did". The influence of television even makes its way into the game with the way Alan Wake was structured episodically and in-game television programs making their way into the game, which ended up selling 4.5 million copies. "All of this material will function as potential source material for the show".
