The Wicker Man, Billy Liar could become TV series

13 March 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Wicker Man is being considered as a TV series, according to Red Production Company.

The company is keen to adapt feature films such as the 1973 horror movie for the small screen, after being acquired by Studio Canal last year.

The acquisition means that Red has access to the company's vast film library, including The Wicker Man and 1963 movie Billy Liar.

Red's managing director Andrew Critchley told Broadcast: "One of the films we're looking at is The Wicker Man, as well as Billy Liar.

"This is one part of a fairly substantial expansion ambition that we have while keeping our domestic projects going."

The Wicker Man, which starred Edward Woodward and Christopher Lee, tells the story of a policeman investigating the disappearance of a young girl amongst a suspicious community.

The movie gained a cult following after its release in the '70s and spawned a 2006 remake starring Nicolas Cage. »
