Stephen King's The Mist is a brutal and harrowing tale of a seemingly innocuous mist seeping into a small, sleepy town and leaving the townsfolk fighting for their lives. Adapted into a movie in 2007, the hit horror will now be transformed into a spin-off TV series.
Variety reports that Spike has ordered a scripted pilot of the show, which will be the baby of producer Christian Torpe and Dimension Films. And, as nothing is known about the cast yet, we've taken the opportunity to do a little fan-casting!
