Though it hasn’t garnered the same traction as, say, 24: Legacy or FX’s acclaimed Fargo, Crackle is in the process of rebooting Snatch, a serialized version of Guy Ritchie’s cult crime caper that’s due to premiere in exactly two months’ time.
Comprised of 10 episodes in total, the Snatch of 2017 is headed up by former Harry Potter star Rupert Grint. He’ll play Charlie Cavendish, a budding hustler who makes a foray into London’s seedy crime scene, only to find himself in deep with the sharks. The high-stakes world of organized crime awaits, though Crackle’s interpretation looks to be a much more refined version of Ritchie’s 2000 original.
That’s a little disappointing, particularly when you consider that the gritty, unforgiving world of Snatch is part and parcel of the film’s charm, but we’re willing to lend Crackle and the creative team the »

The CW’s upcoming gritty Archie Comics series “Riverdale” has been described in various ways: “The O.C.” meets “Twin Peaks.” “90210” meets “Twin Peaks.” “Gossip Girl” meets “Twin Peaks.” But it wasn’t always thus.
It started with Archie Comics executives Jon Goldwater (CEO and publisher) and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (chief creative officer) looking to do a “Perks of Being a Wallflower”-type film, “Riverdale” executive producer Aguirre-Sacasa revealed Sunday morning at the CW’s TCA panel. But while many studios liked the pitch, everyone passed, until the idea came to Warner Bros. It was bought as a film, and development was continuing apace until a meeting with one particular executive.
“He said, ‘I want you to think about time travel, Archie traveling through time,'” Aguirre-Sacasa said. Then came another suggestion: “Portals are huge, [there’s] a portal to another dimension.” And finally: “What if Louis C.K. is Archie?”
