    An “Alan Wake” live-action television series is in development with Peter Calloway (“Cloak and Dagger,” “Legion”) signed on as showrunner and writer, and game creator Sam Lake as executive producer, Contradiction Films and Remedy Entertainment told Variety.

    Contradiction partner Tomas Harlan said the plan is to start shopping the show around in October with Calloway’s full pitch and that he’s already seen initial interest from a number of studios.

    “‘Alan Wake’ was basically a TV series that was put into a game,” Harlan told Variety. “That was Sam’s vision. It was influenced by ‘The Twilight Zone,’ ‘Secret Window,’ Hitchcock, ‘Northern Exposure,’ a lot of U.S. television.

    “We plan to work closely with Sam on our this show. Sam is a huge part of this. This is his baby.”

    Oh, man I can't wait! I love the game and really was an early sign for prestige television before I started watching it. In a video game no less. I hope they can continue the story given how it's open ended.

    Haven't played it, but it's an interesting enough idea for a show, and I like to see games being adapted and hope this'll lead to more.

    Those are also usually most easiest to screw up.
