"Reimagining The Mist" A New Behind-The-Scenes Featurette

The Mist

Two new featurettes for the upcoming adaptation of The Mist were released. One of them introduces us to a character played by Isiah Whitlock, Jr named Gus Bradley. It talks a bit about his character motivations and why he responds to the mist the way he does. The second talks about the difficulty of adapting such a short story to a full length television show while remaining as true as possible to the source material. The last adaption of The Mist from 2007 was nothing like the original story and suffered for it. The showrunners here seem to realize that if you're going to adapt from Stephen King you should use the source material as your foundation and build from there.

Summary: After an eerie mist rolls into a small town, the residents must battle the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity.

The Mist was created by Christian Torpe and stars Morgan Spector, Frances Conroy, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Dan Butler, Luke Cosgrove, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. The 10-episode season will start on June 22nd on Spike.
