Back in February, the interwebz, and a lot of our fellow horror news sites, went ga-ga over the release of a “new trailer” for what many hoped to be the triumphant return of the Tales from the Crypt anthology series that we all loved in the late 80’s/early 90’s.
As cool as the trailer looked, we decided to do a little digging before posting it up and claiming that all was soon to be right with the world of television-based anthology horror (see our original story by clicking here). Unfortunately, it appears that our hesitation was not in vein as TNT and TBS president Kevin Reilly has confirmed that the reboot is all but dead.
“That one got really caught up in a complete legal mess unfortunately with a very complicated underlying rights structure,” Reilly told Deadline, referring to Tales, “we lost so much time, so I said, ‘Look, I’m not waiting around four years for this thing’.
Reilly then went on to discuss a sci-fi based block that the network is working on with Alien guru Ridley Scott which they hope will drop in 2018.
Keep it locked to Horror News Network as we do our best to bring you the real story on what’s going on in horror.
Stay gory my friends.
