Last year at Comic-Con, it has been mentioned that Creepy might be headed to the small screen as a TV series, but it looks like they have bigger plans in store for the franchise. It has just been announced that Chris Columbus will be produce a four-part Creepy anthology film, with plans to write one of the segments.
Deadline reports that Columbus’ 1492 Pictures has teamed up with Dan Braun and Josh Braun, and Sara Feldmann Sheehan of New Comic Company to produce the film. Here are what the Brauns had to say about the project:
“We have always been fans of Anthology horror films such as the Trilogy of Terror and Tales from the Crypt and it has been our goal to figure out a way to make a great CREEPY anthology… Chris and Michael and their team at 1492 are the perfect partners to bring this to life.”
For those who are unaware, Creepy was is a horror comic magazine from Warren Publishing that ran from 1964-1983. New Comic Company acquired the rights from Warren in 2007 and has been looking to revive the Creepy name and take it into other forms of media. There is a Creepy panel taking place later today at Comic-Con and we will update this story if any new details are mentioned.
