Russo Brothers Bringing ‘Little Nightmares’ Video Game to TV
Throw another TV project on Marvel directors the Russo brothers’ ever-tightening slate. The pair are working with the director behind The Nightmare Before Christmas for a TV adaptation of fan-favorite video game Little Nightmares.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Russos will develop and executive produce the new series with DJ2 Entertainment, while Nightmare Before Christmas helmer Henry Selick directs the pilot, and possibly beyond. Here’s how the horror-adventure game is described:
The game follows a 9-year old girl named Six who finds herself trapped on the bottom of a terror-filled ship named the Maw. With hunger and the depths one goes to satiate that hunger as the themes, the storyline follows Six as she tries to escape the ship while evading capture and death at the hands of characters named the Janitor, the Twin Chefs and the Lady.
No explicit network is yet identified for the project, though Little Nightmares is far from the only Russo TV project in development. The former Community directors were also previously working on a Quantum and Woody adaptation, along with Hulu’s Warriors and a Showtime weed comedy.
Naturally, the Russos themselves are largely busy with Marvel ventures, but stay tuned for the latest on Little Nightmares in the meantime.
