the mist

If you remember the Mist movie from 2007, then this upcoming TV series will ring some bells. Stephen King’s novel is in fact being adapted into a mini-series by Dimension Television (Scream) and Danish writer Christian Torpe.

Weird thing is, while the production is already underway there hasn’t been a channel or streaming service yet attached to the project.

The Mist is about a group of citizens who are caught in a mysterious mist that takes over their town, that is filled to the brim with horrible monsters. The novella and the movie mostly take place in an isolated supermarket but the TV show is going to have a much larger scope. so it’s quite possible that they will be building a lot more of the town and perhaps a wider glimpse into the plot of it all.


“The terror and drama in Stephen King‘s novella are so vast that we felt serialized television is the best place to explore them in greater depth,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films, in a statement. “With this show, Christian has created a fascinating band of characters and a story with infinite scares.”

Hopefully this time it would be a decent adaptation.
