George Romero’s ‘Tales from the Darkside’ Up for CW Reboot

Tales from the Darkside Reboot Joe Hill CW

Just when you started to worry that TV would never come up with another original property, what’s one more reboot for the pile? More exciting than ‘Murder, She Wrote,’ it’s George Romero’s classic horror serial ‘Tales from the Darkside’ on deck for the reboot treatment at The CW, courtesy of Stephen King‘s progeny Joe Hill, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci!

Though relatively little has emerged this early in development, Kurtzman and Orci (‘Sleepy Hollow,’ ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ do these guys ever sleep?) would executive produce the project, with Hill on board to write a “reinvention of the horror/fantasy/ thriller anthology series.” The trio had previously worked together in the attempt to bring Hill’s ‘Locke & Key‘ to the small screen.

Also on board for the half-hour reboot (likely to air in the summer of 2014) are original ‘Tales from the Darkside’ executive producers Mitch Galin, Heather Kadin and Jerry Golod. For those unfamiliar with the series, ‘Darkside’ emerged in the 1984 with a respectable 90-episode run, each of which featured an individual short story that culminated in a horrifying twist.

What do you think? Given the increasing horror stock on TV, would ‘Tales from the Darkside’ make for a passable reboot on The CW? Check out the original below, and give us your thoughts in the comments!
