With the recent announcements that movie properties like The Terminator, Sin City and From Dusk Till Dawn are being adapted into television series, it appears that a trend is developing. The old saying that there aren't any new ideas may apply here. But it really doesn't. The new idea is taking something that was successful in one medium and trying to adapt it for another. Or, as we've seen with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, a series can be spun off from a blockbuster movie to explore a world or groups of characters more deeply.
Are there other movies that would make good — or even better — TV shows? Oh, yes. Are there films rich enough in concept and characters to sustain a series taking those ideas further in a different format? Absolutely.
Here are 10 movies that could not only make the transition from big screen to small screen, but would benefit greatly from being able to tell their stories over 13 to 22 episodes, rather than a restrictive two-hour timetable.no comments
