Showrunner Would Love to Do A New CREEPSHOW Movie

The second season of Creepshow debuts on Shudder on April 1st. And today, showrunner Greg Nicotero confirms he’d love to develop a movie reboot.

Nicotero tells ComicBook.com: “Well, you’re talking about different audiences. In this day and age, we have a society that tends to like to watch short content. They like the idea of an 18- or a 20-minute morsel. The fact that I think what makes Creepshow different is that you have all these different themes. So I like what we are able to do. Certainly, I would love to consider doing a Creepshow movie and have a little bit more money, and more time, and expand the show.”

The new anthology based on the 1982 horror-comedy classic, is still the most fun you’ll ever have being scared! A comic book comes to life in a series of vignettes, exploring terrors ranging from murder, creatures, monsters, and delusions to the supernatural and unexplainable. You never know what will be on the next page…

Actors Ethan Embry (Grace and Frankie, Sneaky Pete) and Andrew Bachelor, aka King Bach (King Bachelor’s Pad, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) will join in season three, with more stars to be announced.  Based on Romero’s movie, Creepshow is executive produced by showrunner Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead).

A Creepshow Holiday Special hit back in December. The hour-long episode was called ‘Shapeshifters Anonymous.’ It centered on an anxious man who fears he is a murderer. He searches for answers for his “unique condition” from an unusual support group. Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) starred. Nicotero wrote and directed based on a short story by J.A. Konrath (Last Call).

The Cartel produced A Creepshow Holiday Special with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment: Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, Eric Woods, Greg Nicotero, Brian Witten, Robert Dudelson, James Dudelson, Jordan Kizwani, and Russell Binder are executive producers. Geoff Silverman, Anthony Fankhauser, Julia Hobgood, and Marc Mostman are co-executive producers. Mitchell Galin produced.

Shudder also released A Creepshow Animated Special in October. It featured two stories with animation by Octopie animation studio. The Cartel, Monster Agency Productions, Octopie, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment produced.

Creepshow Season 2 premieres on Shudder on April 1st.
