New novel, BOOKS OF BLOOD TV series and NIGHTBREED TV series
In a recent entry on the Clive Barker official website, the Hellraiser Brain updated interviewers Phil and Sarah Stokes on a trio of projects in the works. We have heard rumors of a Race of the night TV series for years, so of course Barker gives an update; he also spoke to the duo of a Pounds of blood anthology series and a new novel!
First of all concerning Race of the night:
“Nightbreed is also moving forward at a pretty fast pace with a few very well-known directors who are very interested in it. I’m on board to provide mythologies and ideas and hopefully put Barkerian weirdness on the material. For now. , we make the team: we have a writer, a director, producers and now that the new year has started, we are all going to come together and start planning the long-term story, not just the opening story that is going on. “This is what we’ve been doing so far. I feel like, if all of the things that have been promised to me come true, there is a real passion to match the tone of the book and the movie.
Then the Pounds of blood anthology series:
“Then the TV adaptation of The Books of Blood, a series I’m working on with Brannon Braga, [Star Trek, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Salem, 24, and more] is moving forward, quickly, and working with Brannon is an absolute joy. I have to add that I think, because it’s tasty, the series has been extended from the stories of the Books of Blood with stories that I have developed in the style of the stories of Books of Blood – because that’s thirty. years since I wrote the Books of Blood and my mind has certainly not been empty of these kinds of ideas. So there are, I think, thirty or so stories that I’ve developed that one might call “Blood Book Stories,” as narrative sketches, but I haven’t turned them into stories yet. We’re probably going to turn at least some of them into episodes for the TV series. “
Finally, the new novel, Deep hill:
“Deep Hill, is a little more halfway typed now. I’m still working on it and I’m very excited about it. It’s a little bigger book than I thought but, as you know, it always happens to me! It’s not a book for the very young readers of Thief of Always, say, because there are some very dark and fantastic elements in it. It doesn’t contain any sexual material, however, and the swear words you might hear are nothing you wouldn’t hear on the evening news, but it’s scary and I won’t try to dilute that fact. In fact, in some ways I think it’s one of the scariest things I’ve done, as it mixes up both imaginative fears (i.e. weird creatures and the like) with very threatening problems on the world in which we live. Deep Hill involves a world of waste, how we manage waste… ”
