The cult classic ‘American McGee’s Alice’ becomes a TV series | MovieZine – Post World

The 2000 game American McGee’s Alice, based on the book Alice in Wonderland, becomes a TV series.

The cult classic was published more than twenty years ago “Alice from American McGee” for PC, a dark take on Lewis Carroll’s classics ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Alice in the Looking Glass’. In 2011, it got a successful sequel called Alice: Madness Returns.

Now the production company Radar Picture’s Field has secured the rights to the game to make it into a TV series David Hayter as a screenwriter (“X-Men” and “X-Men 2”, as well as the voice of Solid Snake in the “Metal Gear Solid” games).

In the game we follow Alice who ends up in a mental hospital after her family dies in a house fire. She flees into her mental wonderland shaped by her damaged psyche.

– The game series is a groundbreaking interpretation of the classic story. It takes you into the heart of a corrupt wonderland and sheds light on shadowy corners the world has never seen. I am beyond excited to bring this world of madness and wonder to a global audience, says David Hayter in a statement Der Hollywood-Reporter.

Game series creator American McGee is currently working on a third game called Alice: Asylum and Oz: Adventures, based on L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz.

– David Hayter brings the imagination, experience and stealth skills gleaned from successful stints in film, television and games – a unique combination that is sure to make this adventure in Wonderland a successful one for the franchise and fans alike. I look forward to working with him and know Alice fans will greet him with mad affection, he says.

Alice in Wonderland has been adapted into multiple films as a 1951 Disney classic, multiple BBC television series and Tim Burton’s 2010 live-action remake.

Radar Picture’s Field previously produced the series Jumanji, Amityville Horror, The Last Samurai, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, among others.
