Cold in July Duo Working on TV Series for Sundance; Stake Land Also Headed to the Small ScreenThe writing/directing team of Nick Damici and Jim Mickle have impressed us over the years with films like Stake Land and We Are What We Are. As we await the release of their next, Cold in July, we’ve received word that the duo are heading to the small screen. Read on!

The Wrap reports that Damici and Mickle are once again teaming with Jon Lansdale for a television series set to air on the Sundance Channel based on the author’s long-running private investigator series Hap and Leonard. Lansdale was the writer of Cold in July, the novel that the pair’s upcoming film is based on.

In another bit of exciting news, it looks like Stake Land is going to sink its teeth into the small screen, as Mickle and Damici are developing a TV series based on the 2010 vampire film. The movie began as a potential web series, providing Damici, who wrote that film, a base of characters and expanded lore to develop for serialization.

The series will begin seven years after the end of the film and will involve many new species of vampires. Greg Newman, who executive produced the movie, is also involved.

They all mutated; there’s tons of different vamps,” Damici explained. “I said to Greg, the only thing I’ll need — I’ll write my ass off — the only thing is I’ve got to have enough of a budget to have flying vamps. It spread to animals so we’ve got vamp dogs and a vamp bear.

    As good as StakeLand is, I think its best left alone. Then again, these two deliver regularly, so I’m at least intrigued.

    Mickle is on my short list of great genre directors, Mulberry Street, Stake Land, & We Are What We Are all classics for me. I was hoping for a full feature follow up to Stake Land but I think a series could work I’m interested to see how the vamps have mutated and seeing animals inflicted sounds badass!
