A new TV series is in the works that is an adaptation of a quirky, much-loved movie. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the 2004 movie “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” which won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay — along with a nomination for Lead Actress for Kate Winslet — is getting the TV reboot treatment.
“Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, who produced the original film, is remaking the romantic drama into a TV series with studio Universal Cable Productions attached,” THR reports. “The project is in its early stages and has not yet been taken out. Zev Borow (‘Forever, Chuck’) is near a deal to pen the script. UCP declined comment.”
The movie, which also starred Jim Carrey, was written by Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry and Pierre Bismuth, and directed by Gondry.
