David Cronenberg’s Debut Novel ‘Consumed’ is Being Developed as a TV Series at AMC

Deadline is reporting today that David Cronenberg’s debut novel Consumed is being developed into a TV series at AMC.

Dave Erickson (Fear the Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy) will team “…with Lucifer executive producer Sheri Elwood to develop the novel as an hourlong drama series for AMC, where Erickson is under an overall deal.  Erickson and Elwood will executive produce with Cronenberg, who also may direct. Cronenberg’s longtime collaborator Robert Lantos of Serendipity Point, which produced Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises, will also executive produce.”

Consumed is the debut novel (2014) from the filmmaker and “…is described as as a mind-bending psychological thriller that follows two journalists who set out to solve the cannibalistic murder of a controversial Parisian philosopher.”  The novel also includes a parallel structure that brings the two journalists (Naomi and Nathan) together after some typical Cronenberg action featuring rare diseases, licentious living, and paranoia.

No date has been set for production at this time.  Stay tuned to Horror News Network for further updates on Consumed and any other Cronenberg projects.
