The Crystal Grows Dark

“The Power of the Dark Crystal”, a proposed sequel to the classic fantasy film of the 80’s, has been officially put ‘on hiatus’.

Unofficially though, film ick indicates the project is scrapped with almost two years of pre-production work by Genndy Tartakovsky to be chucked out.

That isn’t stopping the Henson company from being busy though. Plans are in the works for adaptations of Edward Gorey’s “The Doubtful Guest”, Susan Cooper’s “The Boggart”, and a film based on the “Monster Blood Tattoo” trading card series.

Brian Henson himself will direct “Boggart” which will be live action.
