Solid Snake Voice actor David Hayter to write American McGee’s Alice TV show

American McGee’s Alice will soon become a TV series, with the original creator also involved in the production. David Hayter, who voiced Solid Snake in multiple Metal Gear Solid games, will helm the upcoming adaptation as showrunner and writer.

According to what we know (thanks to THR), Radar Pictures and Abandon Entertainment have acquired the adaptation rights for the small screen of the Alice series by American McGee. Electronic Arts’ action-adventure series comprises two games – the first launched in 2000, while the sequel, called Madness Returns, arrived 11 years later. Earlier, McGee said he wanted to return to this world with EA, while developing the next chapter, Alice: Asylum, as a crowd-funded project.

If you’re unfamiliar with the origin, the series is based on the novels by Lewis Carroll, but with added layers of gore and violence. The upcoming adaptation focuses on Alice’s return from the trip through the Looking Glass, only to find her house burned down by the fire that killed both of her parents. After several attempts to end her life, Alice finds herself locked up in a mental hospital, only to be summoned by the White Rabbit again – to free Wonderland from the possessions of evil powers. Especially with his trusty knife. Hmm, dark.

David Hayter will write the screenplay for the television series. As a writer, the voice made famous by Solid Snake has worked on many different projects since 2000, including X-Men 2, The Scorpion King, Watchmen and many more. Hayter said he was “beyond thrilled to bring this [Alice’s] world of madness and wonder to a global audience.”

Original American creator James McGee is also on board for the new TV series in an unknown title. In his words, “Hayter brings imagination, experience and stealth skills […] – a unique combination that will make this Wonderland adventure a hit for the franchise.” McGee believes “Alice fans will welcome [Hayter] with mad affection.”

It is currently unknown where and when the television adaptation of American McGee’s Alice will air. But we won’t see the series for at least a year.
