M. Night Shyamalan is bringing a new Tales from the Crypt series to TNT

01.07.2016

For those of you who enjoyed M. Night's latest directorial effort, THE VISIT, then you may get a kick out of the following news: Shyamalan will be re-booting Tales from the Crypt for TNT. The reboot will launch this Fall in a 2-hour weekly block. Shyamalan will be producing each episode, but no word yet on whether or not the man will lend his talents behind the camera. If I was a betting man, I'd say he'd be heavily involved in the pilot.

The days of SIXTH SENSE/UNBREAKABLE/SIGNS Shyamalan are long gone, but I'd say the man still knows how to put together an entertaining movie. Granted, it's oftentimes unintentionally funny, but that's better than boring. With that in mind, I'd say he's a pretty good choice to head up Tales from the Crypt. Having grown up with the HBO iteration, I don't feel too hot about the reboot heading to TNT, but I'll give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

Shyamalan's Tales from the Crypt will hit TNT this Fall.

Send it to Netflix

Love the show, but I don't want it to be censored. Netflix would be a good place for it to be, not TNT.

As much as I loved Tales in my youth, this doesn't interest me at all knowing that Shyamalan is doing it. Whereas many think the guy has become a hack, I have honestly never thought one movie he made was that good. Sixth Sense and Unbreakable were never good IMO, not even when they came out. And I actually was taken to see The Visit without knowing it was him. I hated every second of it. Worst use of handheld cam I have ever seen, and horrible characters. If I saw my old grandmother

If I saw my old grandmother puking in the hallway, I wouldn't shut my door and think it was scary. What kind of horrible kid is that? Go help the old woman, for gods sake! Plus, wasn't Tales originally on HBO? I mean, does it say something that the return isn't on that channel instead?

KASSIR BETTER BE INVOLVED!!!!!!!

X- Files, Evil Dead and TALES FROM THE CRYPT all in one year. Jesus this is incredible. My all time favorite TV show is coming back! Being on TNT there will not be the nudity that would appear every now and than on the HBO series but I think they will be able to get away with the gore. Honestly, love or hate M.K.S, I trust that this series is in good hands.

Wayward Pines was okay, and as long as he doesn't let his ego get the best of him and cast himself in it, I think we'll be fine.

I always thought he would fair much better on TV or at least a miniseries. TNT though? how are you going to properly make this show if it'll possibly air at primetime.

This is exactly what he should be doing

Most of his films are little more than feature length Twilight Zone episodes. Make them shorter and requiring less investment and they'd probably be a lot of fun.

Cautiously optimistic! I'm tired of Shyamalan, but this actually sounds like an appropriate project for him. I could be down for a plot twist of the week show with a little self aware cheeseyness if done right. TNT also has Cary Fukunaga's next show in development. For the sake of quality programming, I hope TNT's relaunch is successful and they're no longer just that channel with Law and Order reruns all day long.
