Larry Cohen Developing Horror Anthology Series With J.J. Abrams
It’s been a while since renowned B-movie director Larry Cohen has been behind a camera. However, that might change and in a very big way as he’s working on launching a horror anthology TV series with J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot, he revealed to BrokeHorrorFan. Additionally, his dream is to get Christopher Walken to be the host!
Cohen explains the concept by saying, “We’re working on a series now for cable with J.J. Abrams, who is a big fan of mine, and his company, Bad Robot. Each season would be 10 original one-hour Larry Cohen thrillers. We’ve got about two seasons already written, ready to be shot. If that happens, it’ll be a whole new renaissance, and there will be a lot of my material out in the world, and I’ll direct some of them. He continues, stating, “That’s what it’s going to be, a thriller anthology. I’m hoping to get somebody like Christopher Walken to be the host and introduce them in a comedic way.”
Cohen is known for films such as The Stuff, It’s Alive, Special Effects, Q, The Ambulance, and more. His last directing project was an episode of “Masters of Horror”, so this is a welcome possibility indeed!
