The Mist Trailer: Stephen King’s Novella Becomes a TV Series

themist

The debate continues to rage on (around here anyway) over whether or not Frank Darabont’s version of The Mist has a twist ending, but in the meantime we’ve got another adaptation of Stephen King’s novella that may serve to confuse the matter even further. This time it is being turned into a 10-episode TV series and showrunner Christian Torpe (Rita) promises a different ending and a partial re-imagining of King’s source material. The show stars Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Isiah Washington, Jr. and Frances Conroy and it will apparently expand the number of characters and locations although it still takes place in a small town in Maine. The Mist premieres on Spike on Thurs. June 22 at 10 pm; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Since the plot and ending are going to be so different, but why not just create a whole new world instead of using The Mist name as a cash-grab?

    Any film post-The Happening which relies on mystical weather seems downright silly.

    Oh, and The Mist ending is not a twist; it’s ironic, but not a twist.

    Screws with your mind? Not interested. I want real-ass monsters, not more Silent Hill cliches.
