Although I hated both Adam Wingard’s A Horrible Way To Die and You’re Next – I thought they were both thoroughly inept pieces of filmmaking – The Guest was something of an improvement, and the man is certanly busy. We know he’s set to direct a remake of I Saw The Devil with frequent writer and collaborator Simon Barret, but now it seems he’s also going to direct the pilot episode of Outcast.

Outcast is the brainchild of Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comic script and his TV adaptation. He debuted another comic earlier this summer, and is in the processs of turning it into another TV series. It’s about Kyle Barnes, who has been:“plagued by demonic possession all his life and now he needs answers. Unfortunately, what he uncovers along the way could bring about the end of life on Earth as we know it.”

Deadline reports that Patrick Fugit [Almost Famous] will play Kyle in the upcoming show, and he will supported by Philip Glenister and young Gabriel Bateman, who will play: “Reverend Anderson, a hard drinking, hard gambling West Virginian evangelical preacher who believes he’s a soldier in God’s holy war against evil” and “Joshua Austin, a young boy who lives across town who appears to be possessed by a demon and has a mysterious connection to Kyle,” respectively.

Kirkman has already written the pilot episode and he looks set to have another Walking Dead-style succes on his hands…

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
