A new report from Deadline claims that a TV adaptation of the classic video games series Myst is in the works with X-Men: First Class writer Ashley Edward Miller. Set to be produced by Village Roadshow Entertainment, this actually isn’t the first we’ve heard of a potential adaptation. Village acquired the rights last year and has been sitting on them for quite some time. I guess now is the time to strike, what with everyone being home and looking for shows to binge-watch.
To ensure authenticity, original creators Rand and Robyn Miller have been tapped by Village to serve as producers. If it wasn’t confusing enough to have two Millers producing, Ashley Edward Miller will also be handling producer duties along with Isaac Testerman and Yale Rice of Delve Media.
There’s no word on which era of Myst this series will be taking place in, but I’d put money on it being Uru. That is probably the easiest of the sequels to adapt what with it taking an almost anthology styled approach to narrative design. From there, I could see the original game and its sequel, Riven, getting some love.
