Back in 2020, Mike Flanagan teased his progress on a new Stephen King film adaptation in the shape of Revivalcalling it “relentlessly dark” material.
“What I love about it is it’s a return to cosmic horror, which I think is so fun,” Flanagan said of the completed script, which was approved by Stephen King. “It is relentlessly dark and cynical and I’m enjoying the hell out of that.”
He added: “This one was a really fun piece of material for me because I get to be like, ‘Oh you want a dark ending? Cool, get ready. ‘”
