PRESS RELEASE: ALAN WAKE HEADED INTO TELEVISION DEVELOPMENT

(Sept 12, 2018 / Los Angeles, USA)

CONTRADICTION FILMS and REMEDY ENTERTAINMENT are developing a premium live-action television series based on Remedy’s award-winning video game ALAN WAKE. Contradiction principals Tomas Harlan and Tim Carter will executive produce and have attached Peter Calloway (CLOAK AND DAGGER, LEGION) as showrunning EP.

ALAN WAKE creator and writer Sam Lake will also executive produce and actively contribute to the series’ development.

“The game was crafted to mirror the pacing of a TV show. It feels right to turn it into an actual show. Tomas and Tim have been working to make this happen with endless passion, and I’m thrilled to have Peter on board, he truly gets the vision of Alan Wake. We want to be faithful to the soul of the game, while diving much deeper into this dark, crazy world.” said Sam Lake, Creative Director at Remedy Entertainment.

Jon Jashni advised Contradiction and Remedy on the transaction and will executive produce through his company Raintree Ventures.

Named by TIME magazine as the best video game of 2010, ALAN WAKE is a supernatural psychological thriller set in the Pacific Northwest. The game was heralded for its story and innovative gameplay and retains a large and fervent fan base.

“We identified ALAN WAKE as a possible adaptation years ago, based on our love of the game and the story,” said Contradiction’s Harlan. “We went out of our way to find a writer who was not only a gamer but shared our love for ALAN WAKE. Peter’s work on LEGION in particular will lend itself to adapting the disorienting and disturbing world that Sam first brought to life in WAKE.”
