23 movies currently being turned into TV shows

15 October 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Big and Uncle Buck to Shutter Island and Rush Hour, here are 23 films that are getting the television treatment...

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.

Here are 23 - count 'em! - currently in differing stages of production...

The film: Earning Tom Hanks his first Oscar nomination, the beloved 1988 comedy drama Big saw him as Josh Baskin who, courtesy of a Zoltar machine, turns into an adult. Romance, work, and playing on a big piano follow.

The TV show: Big is set to be a half hour comedy show from 20th Century Fox Television. Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are executive producing and writing, and Big the TV show is set to »

Emma Stone Lies About Frozen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

15 October 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Emma Stone has been on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon a couple times, but she’s only ever competed in a lip sync battle with the late night talk show host. Last night, however, while promoting her new film Birdman (which, side note, I am dying to see), Stone, who is most famous for her roles in movies like The Help and The Amazing Spider-Man, found herself playing a game she had never tried before: Box of Lies. As you can see for yourself in the video below, Emma Stone promises, before she and Jimmy Fallon even begin the game, that she’s much more comfortable with lip sync battling against Jimmy than trying to lie to him. “I love to lip sync,” she says, “but I am a terrible liar.” While you may think that Stone is just kidding around about how poor of a liar she is, »

9 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

At some point, it’s probably going to become easier to name the classic movies that haven’t been turned into TV shows than the ones that have. The latest big-screen property to transition to the small-screen is In the Heat of the Night, the 1967 drama starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger. Well… at least it’s […]

Showtime Interested in In the Heat of the Night Series

8 October 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Showtime is taking their time in digging up new ideas of TV series, especially controversial ones. Thus the network agreed with Tate Taylor (from The Help fame) to look into a TV series reboot of In The Heat of the Night. Fitting to the latest rounds of racial waves, the plot follows the life of an African-American police officer who is now in the middle of a crime investigation. It is expected to be darker with Tate working with Warren Littlefield on it. As for it actually being filmed, it appears to be in the very early stages of being planned.

Showtime is certainly working hard this fall to line up some interesting shows. I am not sure how they will pull this one off without too many issues. The concept will be a great source of chatter and perhaps issues due to the nature of the story. I think »

In The Heat Of The Night Is Getting The TV Reboot Treatment

8 October 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

MGM Television’s rebooted version of movie classic, In The Heat Of The Night, has found a home at Showtime, as the network will work with the studio to develop the TV series with The Help’s Tate Taylor at the helm.

The original 1967 movie arrived on the big screen during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Based on the 1965 novel, it starred Sidney Poitier, Warren Oates and Rod Steiger, and snagged five Academy Awards for its depiction of a divided Southern town. Poitier led the pic as a police detective sent to the fictional Mississippi town of Sparta to investigate a murder. He meets great hostility from the local sheriff, played by Steiger.

It’s a phenomenal film that sparked two sequels, but doesn’t exactly lend itself to the TV format. However, this approach has been tried before. In the late 80s NBC broadcasted a small screen »

An update on the August announcement that MGM was developing a TV series based on its 1967 classic drama "In the Hear of the Night," with none-other-than Tate Taylor (director of "The Help" and "Get on Up") directing...
