Do you have questions about the Amazon Prime Video adaptation?
How closely does the Amazon Prime Video series follow the book?
There are certainly differences. Knowing that telling a story visually over an eight-part series would entail changes, I went into the project with an open mind. What was important to me, Chris, and Antoine was that the series keep the dark, gritty, visceral, primal, violent tone of the novel. If you watch it with the book in hand with the intent of noting every discrepancy, that might not be the most pleasurable viewing experience. But if you go in expecting it to not follow the book exactly with the understanding that telling a story visually will be different, you are going to have a blast! The good part about it not following the book to the letter is that there will be surprises in store even if you know the novel by heart.
Did Amazon let you keep the gutting scene?
You will have to watch and see. . .
What was your involvement in the series?
I have been involved with every part of the process. It was an incredible learning experience and I feel so fortunate to have been a part of such an amazing team. A new hardcover special edition of The Terminal List with a new forward and exclusive behind the scenes photos is scheduled to drop in the coming months. In that forward I detail the process of bringing The Terminal List to life.
Will there be a season two?
I certainly hope so! Fingers crossed!
Do you have a cameo?
