There have been plenty of bizarre film and TV premises over the years - particularly in the horror genre - but this one might be up there with the most bats*t yet!

Deadline reports that a new comedy horror series titled The Nightbeast is in the works from Leah Rachel (Chambers) and Travis Jackson (Hemlock Grove), with the pilot being developed for Amazon MGM Studios.

Tatiana Maslany (She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Orphan Black) is set to star as a woman who begins a sexual relationship with... the Bogeyman!

Per the official logline, The Nightbeast follows a young mother who is “unsatisfied with her seemingly perfect suburban life begins an affair with the boogeyman in her son’s closet — a surprisingly sexy man called the Nightbeast. But this harmless affair she thought to be a figment of her imagination begins to have unexpected consequences, as her two worlds increasingly begin to collide in this seductive, darkly comedic tale.”

Further details - including potential production start and premiere dates - have not been disclosed, but we do know that executive producers on the project are Peter Warren, Justin Levy, Fred Berger and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Station26, A Range Company), Kristen Campo (Campout) and Jamie Babbit, who will also direct the pilot.

As for She-Hulk, despite rumors that Marvel Studios is working on a second season, Maslany herself cast serious doubts on the show returning for another run during a recent interview. “I don’t think so. I think we blew our budget, and Disney was like, ‘No thanks.’”

She-Hulk received overall positive reviews and was reportedly one of the streamer's more popular Marvel shows with general audiences, but it's fair to say that it wasn't every MCU fan's cup of tea. Though some were fully on board with the show's brand of humor, others found it way too silly, and many felt the season finale, in particular, left a lot to be desired.

Even head writer Jessica Gao admitted that the team struggled to come up with an appropriate ending during a 2022 interview.

"We really, really struggled with the finale. We started off doing a lot of versions of the finale that were much more just like straight and very, very Marvel movie, you know, and it just never felt right for us to just end in a big set piece fight, and take out the bad guy, and it just always felt like, ‘Oh, it’s a different show now.’"

What do you make of the premise of The Nightbeast? Drop us a comment down below.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk. The nine-episode series welcomes a host of MCU vets, including Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/the Abomination, and Benedict Wong as Wong.

The cast also includes Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry. Executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Kat Coiro and Jessica Gao. Co-executive producers are Wendy Jacobson and Jennifer Booth.

Wasn't that always the intent?

Empirically speaking, she's on the "cute" end of the spectrum.

They should just call it "Bangin' the Boogeyman"!

@Nomis929 - Agreed.

@Nomis929 - yeah....because that title would fly in theaters.
Now, if it's released on a streaming service like Prime, Netflix, or Max, then they can call it getting butt-f***ed by the boogeyman.

@lazlodaytona - It’s a series from Amazon Studios, not a movie.

Now that's a pitch I've never heard before.

And they say there's nothing new under the sun.

Actually, seems like a pretty fresh idea. I will definitely check it out! I hope we get to see Tatiana Maslany as She-Hulk again, even if it's just in cameos in films (which might be the best place for the character). That woman oozes charisma
lazlodaytona
lazlodaytona - 6/19/2024, 3:17 PM
@Izaizaiza - she oozes ass shaking and insecurity for a superpowered being
Izaizaiza
Izaizaiza - 6/19/2024, 3:37 PM
@lazlodaytona - Tatiana Maslany has superpowers?! Dang! I had no idea! She just became more awesome in my book! ♥️
RolandD
RolandD - 6/19/2024, 4:44 PM
@Izaizaiza - I hope for more than just cameos but played more serious if she is in other projects such as an Avenger movie, more in line with the tone of the rest of the film.
Izaizaiza
Izaizaiza - 6/19/2024, 4:54 PM
@RolandD - Agreed. Much like the She-Hulk comics, comedy and wall breaking in the solo endeavors, in a more serious character in other titles
RolandD
RolandD - 6/19/2024, 5:02 PM
@Izaizaiza - Exactly. If it’s an Avengers movie, maybe they can spend more on the special effects for her appearance.
Izaizaiza
Izaizaiza - 6/19/2024, 6:09 PM
@RolandD - yep. Agreed. In the show, I just accepted that the VFX were not going to be great. It didn't bother me much
RolandD
RolandD - 6/19/2024, 6:14 PM
@Izaizaiza - Me neither, but it was all the rage to complain about it on this website for a lot of people. I get weary of all the complaining, although I guess I’m complaining now.
Izaizaiza
Izaizaiza - 6/19/2024, 7:22 PM
@RolandD - Ha! Yeah

HOLY OMG MILF CINEMA IS COMING BACK! First we got Amy Adams as a mother turning into a dog in the movie Nightbitch and now this!? My goodness has there ever been such a year to behold such cinematic beauties beyond my wildest discoveries and imaginations. I shall greatly sit myself in such a theater with popcorn on my lap and possibly a hole at the bottom of such popcorn container with my gallon of diet coke while I watch in such happy glee. This is perfection at it’s finest. Thank you cinema lords.
