Riding high off the upcoming release of his new film, People With Mental Illness Are Scary, M. Knight Shyamalan has set his sites on bringing his filmmaking skills to the hit Netflix series Stranger Things. Since the Super Duffer Bros., the team behind Stranger Things, made their debut on Shyamalan's Wayward Pines, they may owe him a Faustian favor, and Shyamalan is coming to collect.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Shyamalan said:
My boys who do Stranger Things, they did Wayward Pines for me. They were round my house and I was like, 'Well, you can hire me back guys!'
Resist the guilt trip, boys! You owe him nothing!
Shyamalan also had an update on his reboot of Tales From The Crypt, which Bleeding Cool reported back in December had ceased development:
I really want to do that and hopefully I still will, but it's hugely complicated. It's particularly difficult because of the rights issues. There are so many estates involved and people involved from the original….
I love the comics [which inspired the original series] – that show was a big deal to me… it was taboo, it was like porn! In my immigrant house, I had to go to my friend's house to watch Tales from the Crypt, so it represented a huge thing for me.
