Fresh off last year’s Malignant, James Wan is currently finishing up sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom for early 2023 release, but he’s also heading into the unscripted arena as well.
THR reports this week that James Wan’s Atomic Monster banner has linked up with Truly Original (“Ink Masters”) for a series of unscripted projects, with several currently in the works.
The Hollywood Reporter details, “The two companies are said to have multiple projects in various stages of development in a number of different unscripted genres.”
The unscripted small screen projects are being developed and produced by Ingrid Bisu (Malignant), Michael Clear, Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, and Chachi Senior.
“I love watching reality TV because, when done right, it can be unfiltered and raw. It’s fascinating to see love, triumph, heartbreak and the entire human experience on display during the most intimate moments in a stranger’s life. It makes one feel less alone when so many of the situations these people find themselves in are extremely relatable. That’s what I want to see more of,” Ingrid Bisu said in a statement. “James and I are so excited to work with the folks at Truly to turn some of our original concepts into series.”
“This is an opportunity to bring a completely fresh creative approach and perspective to unscripted,” said Chachi Senior. “James’ and Atomic Monster’s distinct and ridiculously captivating storytelling abilities, combined with Truly’s deep experience and legacy of creating unscripted hits, provides an exciting foundation for the various series we’re developing together. We’re all looking forward to taking these projects to market, and ultimately, to viewers.”
Will any of these projects be HORROR projects? Here’s hoping…
