Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) and Corey Hawkins (Black KkKlansman) are set to star in the Quibi thriller, Survive, based on the Richard Abate novel of the same name. Jane (played by Turner) and Paul (played by Hawkins) are the only survivors of a plane crash; the two find themselves on a remote snow-covered mountain, and in order to survive must fight for their lives.
The Last American Vampire
The Last American Vampire is another show based on a novel; this time by Seth Grahame-Smith. The Last American Vampire was originally developed for NBC, however, the company passed on the project.
The Last American Vampire is about an FBI agent named Abby who teams up with Henry Sturges to protect the world from a dangerous threat. The twist? Henry Sturges is a 500-year old vampire.
For those who have seen Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (or read the book), the name Henry Sturges may be ringing a few bells. He appears in that story, but only as a supporting character.
Readers rejoice! Yet again, we have another series based on media of the written word variety. Junji-Ito’s Tomie will be arriving at Quibi! Alexandra Aja (who recently directed Crawl), is set to direct this live-action adaption of the Japanese manga series.
In Tomie, a high school girl goes missing and pieces of her body begin to pop up across a small town. As it is based on a Junji-Ito tale, we can expect that it will get really twisted.
