Myst TV show reportedly heading to Hulu

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

A television series based on Cyan's classic graphic adventure puzzle game Myst is coming to video streaming service Hulu, Deadline reports, pending script approval.

Legendary Television and Digital Media division reportedly picked up the rights to adapt Myst for television in 2014, with The Amazing Spider-Man producer Matt Tolmach and writer Evan Daugherty tasked with turning the adventure game into a drama. Daugherty is also attached to write the screenplay for a new Tomb Raider movie.

According to Deadline, the show "will explore the origins of the island of Myst from the game where a man wakes up on a mystery island with absolutely no idea who he is, where is, or how he got there."

Legendary also produced an adaptation of Capcom's Dead Rising franchise, called Dead Rising: Watchtower, for Crackle last year.

Developer Cyan Worlds continues to build upon the Myst legacy more than 20 years after the game's original PC release. The company released realMyst: Masterpiece Edition last year and successfully crowdfunded a spiritual sequel, Obduction, through Kickstarter in 2013.
