M. Night Shyamalan to Take on "Tales From the Crypt"

According to TheWrap, M. Night Shyamalan and TNT will be resurrecting the cult-classic horror anthology, "Tales From the Crypt."

TNT reports that Shyamalan will be serving as executive producer for the upcoming 2 hour horror block. The segment featuring the Tales From the Crypt remake will have both new and original stories, in addition to an "American Horror Story"-esque one hour anthology and other content.

While this sounds alright in theory, Bloody Disgusting has reported a potentially major detractor to fans of the original.

No Crypt Keeper. Everyone's favorite deadtime story teller,voiced by John Kassir, was created for the HBO show and the network still owns the rights to the character. Kassir himself took to Twitter to share his opinion on the matter, saying:

This doesn't bode well...
This isn't to say that there won't be a new character stepping into his coffin. In fact, a hooded old man will be spinning yarns in front of a fireplace. Sounds very "Night Gallery," but it's not too far off from the classic EC comics.

While this is all new information, a lot could change between now and the release of the show. However, the feelings are overwhelming waves of 'meh.'

Will you be tuning in? Let us know what you think and check back here for updates!
