American McGee’s Alice TV Show In The Works By David Hayter

American McGee's Alice TV Show

Though it’s been a while since American McGee’s long-brewing Alice threequel has made any traction, it appears fans are set to return to madness another way with the announcement of an official TV series. As per a report from The Hollywood Reporter, production company Radar Pictures and Abandon Entertainment are working on bringing McGee’s twisted take on Wonderland to screens with David Hayter, the famed voice of Solid Snake from the Metal Gear series, attached to write.

Though mostly known for his vocal contributions to video games, Hayter has also served as a writer for several big-budget Hollywood productions, having amassed screenwriting credits for such projects as the original two X-Men movies, The Scorpion King starring The Rock, as well as Zack Snyder’s 2009 Watchmen adaptation. “I am beyond excited to bring this world of madness and wonder to a global audience,” Hayter said in a statement to THR.

​“David Hayter brings imagination, experience, and stealth sneaking skills gained through successful missions in film, TV, and video games – a unique combination sure to make this adventure into Wonderland a successful one for the franchise and the fans,” American McGee added in a follow-up statement. “I am excited to be working with him and know the Alice fans will welcome him with mad affection.”

For those unaware, American McGee’s Alice is a dark and bizarre overhaul of the traditional Lewis Caroll story which sees a disturbed Alice aim to reclaim her sanity and rescue Wonderland from its corrupted state. The horror-influenced fairy tale title was first released back in 2000 and later received a follow-up in the form of 2011’s Alice: Madness Returns. A third American McGee’s Alice game, Alice: Asylum, has been in the works for years, but hasn’t made significant progress without the official go-ahead from EA.

As of writing, the American McGee’s Alice TV show doesn’t have a channel or streaming platform to call home, though, the series is confirmed to be in development. Production house Radar Pictures has produced a number of well-known properties, including the Jumanji movie franchise as well as the Riddick series led by Vin Diesel. Abandon Entertainment doesn’t have many live-action prospects, but the company’s claim to fame is the 2008 adaptation of Max Payne, which starred actor Mark Wahlberg.
