Behind the scenes still gallery
School teacher Johnny Smith (Chistopher Walken) had a beautiful fiancée, a rewarding career and a fortunate life… until one tragic accident changed everything. After slamming into an 18-wheeler, Johnny is plunged into a five-year coma. When he awakens, he finds his true collision was with destiny – he now has the remarkable gift (or curse) of seeing into the future. From horror master Stephen King and Director David Cronenberg (Scanners, Dead Ringers), this supernatural thriller turns an everyday guy into a reluctant hero… saving children in danger, helping the police and finding a serial killer. But Johnny’s next vision may be his most terrifying yet.
Pre-order The Dead Zone from Amazon.

Idea for a video game:
1) Title: “The City of Madness: The World of Stranger Things”
2) Main premise: As a spin-off to “Stranger Things”, the series takes place in 1984, around the same time as season 2. The game follows three different groups of people in Washington D.C.; a group of high schoolers who start to notice that their friends are going missing, the parents of the high schoolers who start their own investigation when their friends start disappearing as well, and a group of D.C. detectives trying to solve a series of bizarre murders.
3) The big twists: The main villain of the game is Seventeen, another one of Brenner’s test subjects. Seventeen has the power of mind control and has gone completely insane due to his time in the CIA’s captivity. We also learn that the U.S. government has been collecting monsters from the Upside Down, which we see when the heroes discover an underground lab containing several Demogorgons and Demodogs. Seventeen uses his mind control to force the staff to release the monsters, leading to chaos.
4) Your playable characters:
- High school group: Claire Edwards, an antisocial, punk rock high schooler who dreams of being a musician. She’s designed after Joan Jett. Voiced and mo-capped by Sophia Lillis (Young Beverly Marsh from the “It’ movies)
- The parents group: Grant Edwards, Claire’s dad and a cranky businessman/Wall Street stockbroker who despises the rise of yuppie culture. Voiced and mo-capped by Michael Keaton (Bruce Wayne from “Batman 1989″ / “Beetlejuice”)
- The D.C. detectives group: Detective Lincoln Harris, a Vietnam War veteran who is getting too old for this shit. This character is totally not based on Roger Murtaugh from “Lethal Weapon”. Voiced and mo-capped by Carl Weathers (Apollo Creed from the “Rocky” movies)
5) Gameplay: I pictured this to be along the lines of “Life is Strange” or “Detroit Become Human”. The gameplay consists of mainly investigating and quick-time events, as well as the ability to decide where the story will go based on certain choices.
