Syfy are remaking the 1990 feature Nightbreed for television. Based on the horror novel Cabal by renowned horror author Clive Barker, the story explores race relations as it follows a world where half-human/half-monsters struggle to find refuge.
Sounds rather timely, doesn’t it?
When speaking about the planned series, David Robinson, President of Morgan Creek Entertainment said:
“There has never been a more relevant time for us to turn to one of the genre’s great cult classics from our movie library to impact the national conversation with bold, compelling and unconventional storytelling. […] As a sophisticated twist on the classic graphic novel form, Nightbreed pits ‘Humans’ against persecuted monsters, using metaphor and parable to take on bias and prejudice with real-world consequences.”
Clive Barker is the mind behind terrifying classics Hellraiser and Candyman, as well as Imajica and Mister B. Gone.
This new Nightbreed will be written b Jigsaw’s Josh Stolberg and executive produced by James Robinson, David Robinson and Barbara Wall for Morgan Creek and Barker and Mark Miller for Seraphim Films.
