WIRE Buzz: Disney+ has new 'Spooked' writer; Walking Dead cameo on 'Invincible'; Infinity Train Trailer

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney+ has brought in Irish writer and director Peter Foott to develop a Halloween-themed supernatural comedy appropriately titled Spooked.

Little is known about the project, and what we do know may change as Foott will be rewriting the script. What we do know, however, is that the current premise of the film revolves around a group of trick or treaters who transform into whatever costume they happen to be wearing.

Foott is best known for his 2016 film, The Young Offenders, a comedy that follows a pair of best friends who try to find a missing batch of cocaine in order to improve their lives. While the theme of that film doesn’t sound like Disney’s usual cup of tea, the film was a huge hit in Ireland and has its own TV spinoff. There’s no news yet on when Disney+ hopes to get things into production, so we’ll have to wait and see if it will make it to the streaming platform for 2021’s Halloween season.

Robert Kirkman announced during his Comic-Con@Home panel today that the cast of The Walking Dead will make a cameo on his new animated series, Invincible, which is also based on a comic Kirkman created.

The Walking Dead cast members will voice The Guardians of the Globe on the new Amazon Studios series. Wondering who will be voicing whom? We have the answers: Lauren Cohan will be War Woman; Chad Coleman will be Martian Man; Michael Cudlitz will voice Red Rush; Lennie James will be Darkwing; Ross Marquand will be The Immortal & Aquarius, and Sonequa Martin-Green will play the Green Ghost.

All aboard the Infinity Train

The animated series will be returning for its third season on Aug. 13, only this time, the former CartoonNetwork show will now be arriving straight onto HBO Max. And if the trailer released during the show's panel at Comic-Con@Home is any indication, fans will be in for a wild ride. 

This season (or "Book") is subtitled "The Cult of the Conductor" and will follow the story of the leaders of a rebel group called the "Apex" along with two other characters from Book 2. 

Infinity Train was created by writer and artist Owen Dennis (Regular Show) and is based on a popular animated short released in 2016, which introduced viewers to the show's first protagonist Tulip, a STEM-loving 12-year-old girl who was intent on solving the mystery of the train, which features whole universes inside each train car.   

The third season of Infinity Train will debut on HBO Max on Aug. 13.
