The otherworldly dust has settled in the fourth season of , which just ended with two blockbuster episodes. While the Duffer Brothers, who created the show, have yet to make another season of the smash hit, they are looking ahead to future projects.
Matt and Ross Duffer have launched a new production company as part of their partnership with Netflix. Appropriately, it’s called Upside Down Pictures. The studio run by ozark and orphan black Producer Hilary Leavitt, “aims to create the kind of stories the Duffers grew up growing up – stories set at that beautiful crossroads, where the ordinary meets the extraordinary, where grand spectacle coexists with intimate character work, where the heart wins over cynicism”, .
The company and the Duffers also revealed some of the projects they have in the pipeline. For one, they are working on a stage play set in the world of stranger things. Emmy and Tony Award winner Stephen Daldry, known for his work on The crown and Billy Elliott, will direct the play. A live action stranger things A spin-off series is also in the works.
Interestingly, Netflix is making another attempt to adapt the classic manga and anime series death notice with the help of the Duffers. Unlike the poorly received 2017 film, this will be a live-action show.
Also in the works under the wing of Upside Down Pictures is a series from Creators Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews and an adaptation by Stephen King and Peter Straubs The talisman. The production company and Netflix have partnered with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and Paramount Television for the latter series.
stranger things is without a doubt one of Netflix’s greatest successes. Fans have already watched together alone. To it’s only the second season of a Netflix show to reach this milestone within 28 days of release.
So it’s not too much of a surprise that Netflix wants to expand the Duffers’ remit to (hopefully) work their magic in more shows and movies. The company desperately needs more hits to attract new subscribers and keep existing ones on board.
