Greg Nicotero (“The Walking Dead”) has revealed the writers involved in the inaugural six-episode season of the anthology series reboot of the “Creepshow” franchise which has begun production in Atlanta ahead of a late 2019 premiere on streaming service Shudder.
Nicotero says the series will also feature an adaptation of an as yet to be revealed Stephen King story as well as segments from other acclaimed horror writers. The announced segments and writers, not including the King one, are:
“Silvery Waters of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill (“NOS4A2”)
“House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (“Bird Box”)
“The Companion” by Joe Lansdale (“The Bottoms”)
“The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman (“The Lesser Dead”)
“All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones (“The Hitchhiker”)
“Night of the Paw” by John Esposito (“The Walking Dead: Webisodes”)
“Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab (“Monster House”)
Additional stories and directors, as well as key casting, will be announced later this year. Nicotero will direct some of the series, along with the likes of David Bruckner (“The Ritual”), Roxanne Benjamin (“Southbound”), Rob Schrab (“Community”) and John Harrison who was the first AD on the original 1982 film.
