10 Movies Turned Into TV Shows

7 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last night saw the arrival of "Fargo" on FX, the second attempt (after a very short-lived late-'90s version starring Edie Falco in the role that won Frances McDormand an Oscar) to bring the Coen Brothers' beloved comedy-drama to the small screen. Unlike that version, this is something "inspired" by, rather than spinning-off the original. And by most accounts, it seems to have worked, with critics warmly receiving the series executive produced by the Coens and which stars Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, Glenn Howerton, Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key. It's hardly the first to attempt the transition—barely a TV season goes by without at least one big-screen spin-off, and indeed another one arrives shortly, with the Ari Graynor-starring adaptation of "Bad Teacher" debuting on CBS next week. But there's a very spotty rate of success—for everything that spawns a. »

Fargo Ep. 1.01 “The Crocodile’s Dilemma” introduces Bemidji to the Devil

9 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fargo Season 1, Episode 1 “The Crocodile’s Dilemma”

Written by Noah Hawley

Directed by Adam Bernstein

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX

 

Our introduction to Fargo, Noah Hawley’s Coen Brothers-produced adaptation of their 1996 cinematic classic, begins with a very goofy looking Billy Bob Thornton, driving down a long, desolate Minnesotan road (sound familiar?) with someone in the trunk. Bathed in the red of his brake lights, our first look at Lorne Malvo (small spoiler here since we don’t learn his name in the pilot; you’ll survive) is littered with homages to its source material and symbolism, drawing ties to the original (a briefcase! snowy roads! People running through snow!) and silently introducing Lorne as the Devil incarnate – not only is he surrounded by the color red in the opening sequence, he also hits and kills a deer, a beacon of innocence and purity that Malvo eventually stuffs »

FX’s ‘Fargo’ is as good as the Coens’ masterpiece

15 April 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Before I sat down with the first four episodes of FX’s limited series, Fargo, premiering April 15 at 10Pm, I reacquainted myself with the 1996 Coen Brothers’ crime classic. It’s been over a decade since I last saw the film and like a winter squall blustering through, my memories of it had become buried deep in snow. However, after this viewing, I had this insatiable desire to soak in this world for a longer duration.

It wasn’t just any small town that had been rocked by bloody murders and criminal activity, it was this specific ivory landscape that stretched as far as the eyes could see. Its citizens were as foreign and distant as Hawaii or Alaska as were their special brand of talk and affection. Fargo felt like the Coens picked up a snow globe unlike any other and then gifted it to everyone who had seen the film. »

Review: FX's 'Fargo' reinvents the Coen brothers movie

15 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"I don't watch movies," declares Lorne Malvo, the slippery, malevolent figure at the center of FX's new "Fargo" series. (The first of 10 episodes debuts tonight at 10; I've seen the first four.) The line rings true to what we have learned about Malvo, a professional hitman and amateur troublemaker who takes pleasure in encouraging people's worst impulses to see what will happen. But it also functions as a sly acknowledgment of the large shadow "Fargo" the movie casts over "Fargo" the TV show. Created by Noah Hawley (a "Bones" alum who created the charming but short-lived ABC cop show "The Unusuals," starring a then-unknown Jeremy Renner), the new "Fargo" takes place in the same frozen Minnesota winter of the Coen brothers' Oscar-winning film(*), though it is not a remake of that film's story. Still, there are many nods to the movie both big and small — each episode, for instance, opens with »

News Nuggets: New FX miniseries 'Fargo' proclaimed as 'nearly perfect'

14 April 2014 7:14 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Robert Bianco is floored by the new FX miniseries "Fargo," calling it "nearly perfect." He says that the current TV landscape is excellent, so "who would have thought FX would give us not just another contender for TV's top quality slot, but one that is both thoroughly original and outrageously entertaining." While named after the 1996 film and executive produced by Joel and Ethan Coen, the new project is more of "a tribute without coming across as a cheap imitation." The leads are Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton and Emmy nominee Martin Freeman with strong support from Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Adam Goldberg, Russell Harvard, Kate Walsh, and Oliver Platt. Episodes air each Tuesday night starting this week. USA Today. -Break- The best dressed celebrities at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards are unveiled.

Martin Freeman on why he normally would have turned down 'Fargo'

14 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Martin Freeman prefers to be a bit of a drifter.

“It’s not like a life choice where I just want to live in a part forever,” the actor says of his preference for close-ended work. “That’s the joy of the job for me: In a little while, I’ll be playing somebody else with a different load of people.”

Between filming The Hobbit and Sherlock, Freeman had two stipulations for the next project he would take on: He didn’t want to do series television, and he didn’t want to travel far from his London home. Then »

Billy Bob Thorton on FX's 'Fargo' and 'a Haircut Gone Wrong'

14 April 2014 5:36 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

New York (AP) - After failed attempts and broken dreams, by golly, someone went and put "Fargo" on series TV.

The 10-episode season premieres Tuesday at 10 p.m. Edt on FX. And it mesmerizes. As a furtherance of the 1996 crime classic by Joel and Ethan Coen that starred Frances McDormand, William H. Macy and Steve Buscemi, the TV adaptation is a wonder.

Like that movie, the series is set in rural, snow-glazed Minnesota, but 20 years later (in 2006), and is stocked with new characters, deadly mischief and a bounty of stars including Allison Tolman as a bright-eyed deputy and Martin Freeman as a nebbishy insurance salesman (distant echoes of the roles played by McDormand and Macy in the film). Also on hand are Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Kate Walsh, Keith Carradine, Adam Goldberg, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, and more.

At the core of its deliciously deranged narrative is Lorne Malvo, »

Billy Bob Thornton Talks Fargo, Finding His Character, Being Scary and Likable, the Freedom of Television, Taking on a Classic & Why the Role Was So Much Fun

13 April 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

An original adaptation of the Academy Award-winning feature film, the FX drama series Fargo features an all-new crime story.  Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) is a ruthless and mysterious man who turns the life of small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman) upside down, in a way that he never could have imagined.  From executive producer/writer Noah Hawley, the show also stars Bob Odenkirk, Colin Hanks, Allison Tolman, Oliver Platt, Keith Carradine, Kate Walsh, Glenn Howerton, Adam Goldberg and Joey King. During this recent interview to promote the show’s April 15th premiere, actor Billy Bob Thornton talked about finding this character, not wanting to know Malvo’s backstory, playing menace, being both scary and likable, his character’s look, the freedom in television, why he wasn’t worried about taking on such a classic movie, why he rarely ever changed anything in the scripts, how his previous »

TV Review: ‘Fargo’

10 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As bracing as the snowy vistas in the movie on which it is based, FX’s “Fargo” quickly establishes itself as its own property, possessing the tone and style of the rightly admired Coen brothers classic, but pursuing a new tawdry true-crime tale, albeit in similar environs. The limited series also goes far out on a limb in proclaiming its veracity, saying its story’s being told “exactly as it occurred” — a claim that invites skepticism (artistic license has a way of encroaching), but does nothing to cool the passion the show should inspire. Boasting a stellar cast and hypnotic tone, is “Fargo” worth a 10-episode commitment? You betcha.

Indeed, what looked like a daunting challenge — translating the Coens’ idiosyncratic style to TV — can join “American Horror Story” in FX’s quiver of limited-series concepts that are well-suited to the genre. Only unlike that overheated mess, “Fargo” has considerable latitude »

TV Review: FX's 'Fargo' Season One Premiere

9 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

FX's "Fargo" was conceived as something of a ten-episode "movie" more than a standard television series. In this sense it shares something of a kinship with HBO's recently completed first season of "True Detective". And, like "True Detective", which is already developing a second season, the intent with "Fargo" is to feature one true crime story each season and, as writer/creator Nick Hawley said, "After a season or two of the show, people who see the movie might say that was a great episode of Fargo. Each season is a separate true crime story from that region. The movie now fits into the series as another true crime story from the region." The movie Hawley is referring to, of course, is Joel and Ethan Coen's 1996 Best Picture nominee of the same name. And don't go feeling as if that comment, saying the movie could be considered just another episode, »

Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton in the first seven minutes of ‘Fargo’

5 April 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) If, despite the stellar cast, you’re still skeptical of "Fargo," the upcoming television adaptation of Joel and Ethan Coen’s acclaimed 1996 film, then FX may have something that will ease your mind: the first seven minutes of the series. The show is perhaps not so much based on the film so much as it is inspired by it, as FX pitches this "Fargo" as “an all-new ‘true crime’ story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and ‘Minnesota nice’ that made the film an enduring classic.” In it, Billy Bob Thornton plays Lorne Malvo, a manipulative man who meets small-town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman) and forever changes his life. The series also stars Colin Hanks, Allison Tolman, Molly Solverson, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Glenn Howerton, Joey King, Peter Breitmayer, Tom Musgrave, Josh Close, Russell Harvard, Adam Goldberg, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. »

Watch The Opening Seven Minutes Of FX’s Fargo

4 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joel and Ethan Coen’s dark comedy Fargo is a modern classic – there are few who would dispute that. The film’s revered status must be quite nerve-wracking, then, for FX, which will begin airing a miniseries adaptation of Fargo in a few weeks. Luckily, writer/showrunner Noah Hawley has assembled a very impressive cast to help him do right by the series’ inspiration.

Martin Freeman stars as a down-on-his-luck insurance salesman Lester Nygaard (the adaptation’s version of William H. Macy’s Jerry Lundegaard). When the deadly stranger Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) blows through Fargo, leaving death and destruction in his wake, Lester is thrown headfirst into a series of criminal misadventures.  Fargo also features an incredible supporting cast, including Colin Hanks, Allison Tolman, Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Kate Walsh, Keith Carradine, Adam Goldberg and Glenn Howerton.

Now, Yahoo has unveiled the first seven minutes of the miniseries’ pilot episode, »

Watch: 'Fargo' Featurette Explores Coen Brothers Universe Of TV Show Plus 3 Promos & 12 New Pics

2 April 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While seeming blasphemous at first blush, FX has taken great pains to both nod to the Coen Brothers’ sublime original in its marketing while trying to prepare general audiences for its limited series take on “Fargo.” To further help confused viewers—and maybe to assuage the fears of fans of the original—the network has released a featurette to properly set-up the series’s point-of-view in relation to the 1996 film. The roughly two-minute-long featurette has the cast and crew of the TV series pitching the show as an expansion of the original film, taking place in the Coen Brothers universe but with entirely new characters and a new storyline. We’re still on the fence on this one but with the cast the show’s lined up, there’s a chance it may end up on the level as “Friday Night Lights” and “Hannibal” as TV spinoffs done right. Starring Billy Bob Thornton, »

New Featurette for FX’s Fargo Explains How the Miniseries Differs from the Coen Brothers Film

1 April 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

FX has released a new featurette for its upcoming limited event series Fargo.  The TV series is an adaptation of the Coen brothers film of the same name, but many have been curious to see how different (and how similar) the show is to the movie—which, to put it simply, is a masterpiece.  This new featurette does a good job of explaining the distinction between the two, as the cast and producers note that while the show has new characters and a new story, it’s very much in the spirit of the movie.  Fargo is one of my favorite films of all time so I was pretty wary of FX’s spin on the material, but everything we’ve seen thus far has been genuinely promising, and the close-ended nature of the miniseries format allows them to essentially create a 10-hour movie. Hit the jump to watch the featurette. »
