It’s announced this week that The Feed, a brand new sci-fi novel by Nick Clark Windo, is to be adapted into a high-end drama by Amazon and Virgin Media, who have won the rights to the adaptation.
The Feed is Windo’s debut novel, and unusually it’s only just been released as a book. The post-apocalyptic novel was released in the UK on 25th January but isn’t due for USA release until March this year. Early reviews are positive, and positive enough for Amazon and Virgin Media to put their money where their proverbial mouths are, putting into production a 10-part drama set in London.
According to Deadline magazine, the 10-part drama will be adapted for screen by The Walking Dead executive producer Channing Powell and British producer Studio Lambert. When aired, Amazon will hold the rights to the show for the Prime Service, and we’ll bring you more details of that when the show is in production.
It’s very early for the news of the adaptation with the novel barely on the shelves, but the post-apocalyptic, dystopian novel explores what it is to be human and what it is to be connected in a digital age, capturing the zeitgeist of today. Described as Walking Dead meets Black Mirror, we think it’s likely to be huge when it releases, and thankfully that is a while away yet so if you want to read the novel before this hits the screens, it’s time to do so!
As reported by Screen Daily, Saboteur Media gained worldwide rights for the project and is currently being pitched to buyers after the film wrapped in August. The story will take a new look at the classic story and begins with a Victorian family preparing a toy stage in order to do a production of A Christmas Carol. We then see the story through the eyes of a young viewer, as the cardboard sets and toys are transformed into a fantastic and vivid tale.
There’s no doubt we’re depleting the world’s resources and in Mortal Engines, Reeves imagines a world where we all have to resort to rolling cities, forced into predatory behaviour as they crawl the world fighting to survive.
After the surprising success of the first Goosebumps movie, starring Jack Black as Stine himself, this sequel looks to continue the fun and freaky mix of scary and silly. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween will star Madison Iseman, Ken Jeong, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Caleel Harris.
Jack Black is rumoured to return as the voice of one of the haunted book characters come to life!
Check out the trailer below, and watch out for the movie’s release mid-October.
The adaptations have been fantastic and both Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger have exceeded expectations in the leading roles. Read More
