The Mist is one of Stephen King‘s most popular novels. Frank Darabont‘s big screen adaption might also be one of the most controversial King translations. I personally loved the film and its dark and somewhat hopeless ending.
That being said, I do think that it could work in long-form storytelling.
Spike TV has rights to the show, which is looking very familiar, yet could present the opportunity for a lot of growth and expansion.
I just hope that they have an idea in mind beforehand and aren’t simply going to stretch the show out until it makes no money.
That would ruin something as precious and contained as The Mist.
Are you going to give it a shot?
