X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Writer to Pen TV Series Based on Cyan Worlds' Classic MYST Franchise
This should make fans of the classic Myst franchise more than happy indeed — Deadline is reporting that X-Men: First Class writer Ashley Edward Miller is set to write the long-delayed television series and act as showrunner. Quite interestingly, said show has been in various stages of development since October 2014.
Miller's writing credits include Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Thor, Black Sails, The Twilight Zone and Lore. Although he will produce the TV series, he's also set to pen the script for the pilot episode of Myst.
Myst is in the works at Village Roadshow Entertainment Group. According to Deadline, the studio is planning to "expand upon the game’s existing mythology to develop a multi-platform universe that includes film, scripted and unscripted television content," so chances are that it won't end after the first season.
Although Myst was supposed to make its debut on Hulu — which is controlled and majority-owned by the Walt Disney Company following the acquisition of 21st Century Fox — it's not clear if that's still the case.
Considering that the Cyan Worlds–created Myst canon has over 10,000 years of history, it's safe to say that Miller and his production team won't run out of interesting stories to adapt anytime soon.
