Well, so much for that comeback! IndieWire is reporting the Tales from the Crypt comeback might not be happening after all due to rights issues.
The December status given by TNT to Bloody-Disgsuting was the following: “the underlying rights to the classic, vintage property are complicated. TNT and others have been pursuing a solution for more than a year, with significant progress being made. We look forward to the potential for further active development of this valuable franchise once the clearance process is fully resolved.”
The update by IndieWire given is this week is…the same. Bummer.
