Cape Fear, the TV series?

A TV series based on Cape Fear is reportedly in the works with Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and screenwriter Nick Antosca, according to US reports.

The show would mark Scorsese and Spielberg’s first ever TV project together. Nick Antosca created true crime and horror dramas like Channel Zero, The Act and Candy.

According to Variety, the logline for the Cape Fear re-imagining is “A storm is coming for a pair of married attorneys when an infamous killer from their past gets released after years in prison. A tense, contemporary thriller that examines America’s obsession with true crime in the 21st century.”

Cape Fear was originally a 1962 film with Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum before a hit remake in 1991 with Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte, Jessica Lange, Joe Don Baker and Juliette Lewis.
