The intent was to merge these elements in order to tell this epic dark fantasy tale. I think it will be very cool. The most important thing we’re aiming for, and what the original didn’t have, is the fact that we really can making the series at the highest level with regards to R-rated content and other elements that it was not possible to stage at the time “.
