Video game company Remedy has been working on a TV series for the horror game “Alan Wake” for several years. Now the project has lost its showrunner.
In mid-May, developer studio Remedy issued a small update on the TV series for the in-house horror game, which has been in the works for several years Alan Wake. Now the usually very well-informed industry magazine announces Variety in an exclusive report that the project has suffered a serious setback because the showrunner of the video game adaptation has since had to leave production.
Alan Wake showrunner has other commitments
Said showrunner is Peter Calloway, who has worked on the Marvel series “Cloak & Dagger” and “Legion” in recent years. Calloway has been involved in the making of Remedy’s horror game since the project was first announced in 2018. However, according to Variety, Calloway has now had to step down due to other commitments and other productions in his schedule as a priority.
It is not yet known who will take over from Peter Calloway in the Alan Wake TV series. However, the responsible broadcaster AMC (“Breaking Bad”, “The Walking Dead”) is currently looking for a new showrunner. In addition, Variety reports that Jon Jashni (producer on “Warcraft: The Beginning”) and Jeff Ludwig will now serve as producers on the film adaptation of the horror game.
Although the work on the series now seems to be picking up speed, it also seems as if those responsible still have to overcome various obstacles. Remedy is working with AMC on the Alan Wake series, but information on some key items is limited at this time. In addition to a showrunner, it is currently unclear who will write the scripts for the TV production.
“Alan Wake” revolves around the bestselling author of the same name, who is in a creative crisis. A vacation with his wife in the small town of Bright Falls should help to finally be able to write again. Shortly after their arrival, however, things start to take a turn for the worse and strange events keep happening. In order to save the love of his life, Alan must gather all his courage without going insane.
