This could become very dangerous indeed.
There is a direct threat out there, to great movies we love and behold. That threat is in the shape of TV.
Whilst TV is undoubtedly (over the last 10 years) in a golden era, there is a real danger that great movies will slowly be turned into wet, limited TV shows, with no real story or substance to engage an audience.
Don’t we have enough great TV as it is? Breaking Bad has arguably been the greatest yet and has just bowed out to high applause but with other shows like ‘The Walking Dead‘ and ‘Boardwalk Empire‘, we don’t need smallscreen adaptations right now.
Saying that, we hear Bradley Cooper is producing and surprisingly starring in the Limitless TV adaptation. Not sure why he is, maybe he knows something we don’t? Maybe it’s going to be as good as ‘Breaking Bad’ and almost better the Movie? Could it be a #limitless phenomenon the World embraces?
Relativity produced the feature film, so the studio’s TV sister — Relativity TV — producing the smallscreen version is a natural evolution.
Let’s wait and see how this plays out…
