The Walking Dead may not be the only horror series on AMC soon. According to Deadline, the network is developing a series adaptation of Joe Hill’s supernatural horror novel NOS4A2.
Hill’s novel was first published in 2013.
The story “centers on Victoria “Vic” McQueen, a young woman with an uncanny talent for finding lost things… a gift that is gradually destroying her mind.” McQueen soon encounters Charlie Manx, a supernatural being who abducts children in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith and sucks their souls to keep himself young. The license plate on the Rolls? NOS4A2.
The book went on to become a bestseller and was nominated for the 2013 Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel. Hill is the son of famed horror writer Stephen King.
So far, no writer is attached to the series. But the team behind BoJack Horseman will be producing.
What do you think? Have you read NOS4A2? Would you watch the TV adaptation?
I haven’t read the book, but nah, it doesn’t sound interesting at all. There’s nothing unique about the plot. If the book was #1 on the best seller’s list and he won the Bram Stoker award then he needs to be the screenwriter and producer to make it as close to the book as possible. Usually the movies or TV shows aren’t as good as the book.
