Alan Wake could be getting a TV show adaptation

Alan Wake XBOX

Peter Calloway (Cloak and Dagger, Legion) is now developing a live-action series adaptation of video game Alan Wake, Variety has confirmed with Contradiction Films and Remedy Entertainment. According to Harlan, he plans to pitch the show in October.

As for what fans can expect from this series, Lake told Variety that Alan Wake will still be central to the series' story but he's also planning to focus on numerous surrounding characters within the world. Contradiction Films' Tomas Harlan told Variety that Lake is a "huge part" of the show and that, ultimately, it's still "his baby".

Although Alan Wake was released in May 2010 for the Xbox 360, the gaming population hasn't forgotten Wake's adventure through idyllic Washington. Developer Remedy Entertainment eventually created a standalone DLC for the game two years later called American Nightmare, and a sequel was in the works at some point, though it was canceled and work was moved to Quantum Break.

Hopefully the show will be just as good as the game.

Video games rarely translate to the big screen, but what about the small screen? Sam Lake, the game's original creator, is also involved in the creation of the series and will act as the show's executive producer.

Now Remedy will dive into the world of TV proper by both revisiting Alan Wake's video game origins and expanding on them. "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". "As before, we're exploring these possibilities and hoping to make it happen when the time is right".

For now, fans will have to settle for the new show, which Lake decline to confirm or deny will be canon, citing the need to avoid spoilers.

Nick Santangelo is a freelance writer based in Philadelphia.

While the game followed Alan Wake throughout, with other characters serving as obstacles or allies, the show will develop those characters and the universe itself beyond what we've already seen.
