MURDER IN SUCCESSVILLE is eyeing up the big screen, with a film version being developed through a new production company created by the team behind the show.
Andy Brereton, James De Frond and Tom Davis are looking to create a movie version with Shiny Button, a company developing and producing original content across both television and feature films (via Screen Daily).
The trio said: “The unprecedented success of Murder in Successville has inspired us to create a highly original film project in which the lead character DI Sleet (played by Tom Davis) shepherds an unknowing mega star through an action-packed cop drama.
Imagine a cop buddy film like Lethal Weapon, except one half of the cop duo doesn’t know the script or what surprises are in store.”
Ever since Ryan Reynolds made Deadpool everyone’s new favourite comic book character (until maybe Tom Holland’s Spider-Man) last year, fans have been wanting more of The Merc with a Mouth.
Well now Marvel has announced chimichangas for everyone a brand new animated series set to premiere on FX, the home of the madcap XMen spin-off Legion.
The 10-episode series is going to be executive produced and written by Donald Glover and his brother Stephen.
You’ll know Donald from Community, and he’ll be appearing in Spider-Man: Homecoming and the Han Solo Star Wars movie (as young Lando Calrissian), so he’s got plenty of nerd cred.
