Ever since Michael Cera’s breakout performance in Arrested Development, he’s seemed to become obsessed with series. Because Arrested Development was a television series, you see. Don’t believe me? Check out these Coinkydinks (or Coinkydonks)…
Though not officially a remake, revision, or reboot (or whatever Hellywood wants to call unoriginal ideas), the main characters’ were named after the main characters in The Thin Man film series – Nick and Nora Charles. Interestingly enough, The Thin Man films were also adapted into a TV show, but all of it was based on a single novel by pulp writer, Dashiell Hammett.
The movie is based on the first book in a series by C.D. Payne (which could be a pretty good Garbage Pail Kids name in more than a few ways). Will there be sequels to the movie, though? The youth revolted instead of seeing this one at the theater, so I’m going with no.
This film adaptation has yet to be released, and though I don’t think it will meet everyone’s tastes, I’m certainly looking forward to it. Director Edgar Wright made Shaun of the Dead; he also made this flick. ‘Nuff said. But if there is more to be said, it relates to this overall post… the movie was based on a comic book series.
