NBC Universal’s horror network Chiller has announced it’s creeping into original programming with a slate that includes an adaptation of Remains, the post-apocalyptic tale by Steve Niles and Kieron Dwyer.
Published in 2004 by IDW, the miniseries follows a blackjack dealer and an exotic dancer who are mysteriously spared by a zombie apocalypse. However, they’re left trapped in a Reno casino, surrounded by an army of the undead — and have no idea what lies beyond the city limits.
Directed by Colin Theys from a script by John Doolan, the movie is produced the Connecticut-based Synthetic Cinema International. The Day reports that filming is set for three weeks in June in Mystic, Conn., transforming the Ramada Inn on Route 27 into the Nevada casino.
Producer Andrew Gernhard tells the newspaper Remains will have a limited theatrical run before debuting on Chiller this fall.
Niles, whose 30 Days of Night was adapted as a motion picture in 2007, has had numerous comics optioned for film, including Criminal Macabre, Aleister Arcane and In the Blood. Famed guitarist Slash announced in January that he’ll launch his horror-movie company with four projects — among them, an adaptation of Wake the Dead, by Niles and Chee.
