the Alan Wake The television adaptation is still in progress, Alan Wake Developer Remedy Entertainment revealed today as part of a video celebrating the video game’s 12th anniversary. But that’s not all Remedy Entertainment had to say about it, as it was also announced that the company now has a partner as AMC Networks has purchased the rights to the Alan Wake TV series.
The horror video game adaptation was first announced in late 2018. At the time, it was revealed that Peter Calloway (Cloak and Dagger, Legion) had signed as showrunner and writer with Remedy Entertainment and Alan Wake creator Sam Lake as executive producer. The show was then being developed by Contradiction Films and Remedy Entertainment. It’s unclear if anything about this setup has changed in the meantime, but it certainly seems likely.
