... if it goes ahead, that is. Deadline brings word that Fox have ordered a "put pilot" for a TV series based on the novel Horrorstör, and it'll be produced by Josh Schwartz, Gail Berman and Charlie K.
Written by Schwartz and Black List screenwriter Michael Vukadinovich, Horrorstör centers on 26-year-old Amy. Newly sober, she lands a job at ORSK, the U.S. Flagship of the European furniture superstore. It feels like just the opportunity she’s needed to get her life back on track, but as Amy comes to discover, the store actually preys upon its customers’ desires to a supernatural degree, selling products that make their wishes and fantasies come true in unexpected and insidious ways.
It was Oscar winner Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind), who brought the book to Berman’s attention. (Source)
The book is "designed in the format of an Ikea-esque furniture catalog."
So I would say the How and Why pilot is dead and buried, but now we have this to (tentatively!) look forward to. And Anomalisa, which we definitely can look forward to!!
