In a report from Variety, it has been revealed that Alan Wake, the 2010 psychological action thriller developed by Remedy Entertainment, is being adapted into a television series helmed by Peter Calloway, whose previous work includes Legion, Cloak & Dagger and Under the Dome. Calloway will serve as showrunner and writer on the series, with the original game creator Sam Lake executive producing in the collaboration between Contradiction Films and Remedy Entertainment.
The project is still to attach itself to a studio, although there are reportedly a number showing interest, with Tomas Harlan from Contradiction they will be meeting a number of studio executives in October to pitch the show and lock in a deal.
Published on the Xbox 360 in 2010 and PC in 2012, Alan Wake follows the eponymous best-selling thriller novelist as attempts to uncover the truth behind his missing wife, in the creepy fictional town of Bright Falls, Washington, as a series of unexplainable events unfold. The game closely follows the format of television, divided into six-episodes, with additional episodes released post-release, and is inspired by shows including The Twilight Zone.
