Earlier this evening on Kevin Smith’s Youtube Channel, He and ‘FATMAN ON BATMAN’ co-host Marc Bernardin
announced their new upcoming jobs. (Video can be seen at the end of this here article)
For the better part of a few months and on in to june or july, highly regarded movie/tv critic and reviewer featured in major publications, Most recently the L.A Times (a job he just recently left) Marc Bernardin has been apart of the Writers room for the upcoming Stephen King HULU Series
A series said to be a unification of the Stephen King Universe. Which could mean characters from King’s numerous works could coexist together.. Which to me sounds like a Stephen King version of “ONCE UPON A TIME..” (The Fairy Tale show on ABC) But at this point not much more is known about the project, but Marc’s involvnent could give me a reason to order Hulu.
Kevin’s big announcement revealed that He and BBC America could be partnering on a SAM and TWITCH series.
For those of you who dont know. Sam and Twicth was (or is) a spin off series of SPAWN.
Now, Smith himself states that a deal hasnt been fully confirmed. According to Smith BBC America approached him revealing that they had the rights to the characters for a live action presentation. Asked if he had any ideas, Smith presented an approach to the series the executives seemed to like and appreciate. Smith says a first draft of the Pilot is completed and is ready to be handed in and a full series ground work or ‘bible’ if you will, should be completed by him in the next couple of weeks to a month.
It will be interesting to see how he will be doing this at the same time as he is set to (hopefully) begin pre-production of the “JAY AND SILENT BOB: REBOOT” film.
No word on how involved Todd McFarlane is with this project.. But the idea of Kevin Smith spinning his magic in the McFarlane Spawn-Verse is really exciting! I hope things work out for Kevin and this series. So, fingers crossed folks!
Heres the video i promised..
So what do you folks think? Are you excited for these two projects? Hit me up! Comment Below!
Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
