25 August 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Exorcist! Lethal Weapon! MacGyver! Taken! Just when you thought we'd reached peak TV remake and reboots development season strikes again. Yes, even more remakes of your favorite movies are coming down the pike with The Departed, Snatch and Get Shorty all in the works. As the kids say, this trend can't be tamed. In the last few days, several beloved films were announced as either in development as a new series or already casting leads. It's important to remember, for every Parenthood, there's, well, a Parenthood. Yes the NBC series based on the 1989, but before there was this fan-favorite modern adaptation, TV took a stab at it in 1990 with Leonardo DiCaprio and David Arquette. It didn't »

Don't call it a reboot: how 'remake' became a dirty word in Hollywood

24 August 2016 6:44 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Studios are scrambling for new ways to describe their regurgitated fare, but will painting the old wagon with fresh paint stop the wheels falling off?

Some of the greatest Hollywood movies of the modern era are remakes. Martin Scorsese’s grubby Boston gangland thriller The Departed riffs shamelessly on the Hong Kong crime epic Infernal Affairs, while David Cronenberg’s 1986 body horror classic The Fly is an update on the 1958 Kurt Neumann chiller. The Coen brothers’ 2010 remake of True Grit is generally considered to be superior to the hokey 1969 version starring a past-his-best John Wayne, while the 1982 version of the Antarctic science fiction horror The Thing is a better movie than the 1951 film The Thing from Another World from which it drew inspiration.

And yet the very term, along with its younger sibling the “reboot”, seems to have become a dirty word in Hollywood in 2016. If Star Wars: The Force Awakens »

The Departed TV Series Officially Moving Forward At Amazon

23 August 2016 3:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite displaying early signs of promise, The Departed was one of the early movie-to-tv adaptations that seemed to tumble off Hollywood’s proverbial radar. After all, this is a project that we haven’t heard of in close to six months, and it’s only now that the repackaged, serialized version has been snapped up by Amazon Studios and Warner Bros. that the mob thriller has reemerged to the fore.

Featuring a script penned by Detroit 1-8-7 creator Jason Richman, this version in particular is dubbed as a new spin on the undercover cop set-up glimpsed in Martin Scorsese’s beloved Oscar-winner – itself an adaptation of Hong Kong thriller Internal Affairs.

Case in point: The Departed TV series will swap Boston for the Windy City and is said to be set “at present-day Chicago, amidst the shifting tides of warring ethnic drug gangs. In it, a young cop goes undercover »

Amazon orders The Departed TV series

23 August 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Amazon continues to build its network of original programming, Variety is reporting it has just acquired a new series from Warner Bros. TV and Plan B based off Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, which in turn was a Western remake of Andrew Lau and Alan Mak’s 2002 Hong Kong thriller Internal Affairs.

Warner Bros. TV and Plan B are teaming with writer Jason Richman on the series. Richman will write the pilot episode and then executive produce the series. He previously worked on the police drama Detroit 1-8-7 and Lucky 7, both for ABC.

This new series will take place in Chicago as a young police officer goes undercover in a Latino gang just as they plant their own man inside the police force. The two moles work to undermine the forces they’re hiding in while attempting to uncover the other’s identity. No word on when The Departed »

Infernal Affairs Heads to Amazon via The Departed

23 August 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Ten years ago, Martin Scorsese's somewhat ungainly The Departed took flight from Andrew Lau and Alan Mak's terrific thriller Infernal Affairs, eventually earning Scorsese his long overdue first Academy Award. Now a new version is heading to the Amazon streaming service. Scorsese's remake, scripted by William Monahan, also borrowed elements from the original's two sequels. As I wrote in my review at the time: "Instead of simply 'Americanizing' the whiplash twists and turns of the original Hong Kong police thriller, which generated terrific tension in its first 30 minutes, the filmmakers used the material as inspiration for making a juicy, straightforward crime epic in which the characters are painted in varied shades of grey." The premise remains the same: a young cop goes undercover in...

Newswire: The Departed to be remade as an Amazon TV series

23 August 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Like a detective going so deep undercover that only a few are even aware he exists, Martin Scorsese’s The Departed is joining the growing litany of movie-to-tv adaptations as a series for Amazon—though only the barest traces of its identity will remain. Detroit 1-8-7 creator Jason Richman, Warner Bros. TV, and the same production groups behind Scorsese’s Oscar-winning 2006 film (though not Scorsese himself) are developing a new take on the crime drama set in present-day Chicago, where a young cop embeds himself within a Latino gang and butts heads with the gang’s own plant inside the city’s police department, who feeds his bosses information in whatever downtime he gets between shooting black men.

The Departed itself took the Hong Kong setting of its source material, the 2002 thriller Infernal Affairs, then turned it into a loose retelling of Boston gangster Whitey Bulger where Matt ...
