Legendary TV Developing HP Lovecraft Series

Published

on

With all the great horror on TV right now, one thing is sorely missing: a show based on the works of HP Lovecraft. But that could be changing soon as Dread Central was tipped off today that Legendary TV has been developing a television series that will not only feature characters, narratives, and locations from sixteen of the late American author’s titles (including The Dunwich Horror, The Call of Cthulhu, and The Shadow Over Innsmouth) but is also slated to be the first TV series to be officially approved by the Lovecraft Estate.

With a pilot script penned by Matthew Francis Wilson, producers Lorenzo Di Bonaventura (Transformers) and Dan McDermott are set to soon begin speaking with networks.

We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

Guillermo del Toro’s Animated Series Trollhunters 2 Now Streaming on Netflix

Published

on

Netflix’s “Trollhunters” isn’t a series I’ve had the chance to check out for myself. Nothing against the kid’s horror series, I just haven’t had the time.

That said I’ve heard good word-of-mouth regarding the series and being that it comes from the mind of Guillermo del Toro it can’t be a total waste of time. Especially with a cast featuring Ron Perlman, Steven Yeun, and Anton Yelchin.

If you’re like me and haven’t given the show a go yet, then make sure to check out the following promos below and then make your mind up from there. You have to hand it to the series as it looks utterly stunning. Hope the actual content holds up. Only one way to find out!

“Trollhunters” is created and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro. Executive producers include Marc Guggenheim, Rodrigo Blaas, Christina Steinberg, and Chad Hammes. Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman are co-executive producers.

Voice talent for includes Kelsey Grammer (“The Simpsons,” X-Men: The Last Stand), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Steven Yeun (“The Walking Dead”), and Anton Yelchin (Fright Night).

“Trollhunters Part 2” is now streaming on Netflix.

Synopsis:

When ordinary teenager Jim Lake, Jr., stumbles upon a mystical amulet on his way to school one morning, he inadvertently discovers an extraordinary secret civilization of mighty trolls beneath his small town of Arcadia. Suddenly destined to play a crucial role in an ancient battle of good and evil, Jim is determined to save the world – right after gym class.

But when a terrible tragedy takes place at his daughter, Emma’s, school, he is forced to question everything he thought he knew about his beloved girl.

When more strange things begin to happen, he’s faced with keeping a terrible secret to protect Emma but ultimately must stop her from striking again.

Lowe, The Wolper Organization’s Mark Wolper (“Bates Motel,” “Roots”), and Elizabeth Stephen executive produce. Preliminary casting is under way with production eyeing an early 2018 start.
