One of Disney’s darkest series could soon get a live-action revival. James Wan, the man who helped reinvent himself Horror with Seen And Insidious (and made the mega blockbusters Angry 7 And Aquaman) teams up with frequent collaborator Gary Dauberman to shoot the Disney cartoon from the 1990s Gargoyle into a live-action series for Disney+.
Accordingly the Hollywood Reporter, who announced the story, Dauberman will serve as showrunner, writer and executive producer, while Wan will also serve as executive producer as part of his Atomic Monster company. The pair have worked together before Annabelle Films, part of it The incantation Universe in which Wan has helped create and direct several films. Dauberman wrote Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation, And Annabelle comes home, He also directed the last one.
And during Gargoyle Obviously it won’t be that scary (after all, it’s being made for Disney+), the potential is there. The show ran from 1994 to 1997 and followed a group of gargoyle statues relocated from Scotland who woke up at night to protect New York.
There’s no word on when Dauberman and Wan will begin work on the show, but the timing is certainly appropriate. With Halloween just around the corner, Disney+ just released a show based on it Goose flesh Series of books that many believe strike a good balance between spooky, spooky, and “safe for Disney.” That almost certainly seems to be the exact balance, if not the tone Gargoyle Show would have to carry to make it to the streamer.
And while rumors about a Gargoyle Remakes have been around for years, Since a project from the 2010s is already relatively close to completion, it certainly seems like a project that could actually happen.
