The Hollywood Reporter was first to share the news of this latest film-to-TV adaptation amidst the frenzy of reboots and adaptations currently sweeping Tinsletown (think film-to-TV: 12 Monkeys, Minority Report, Limitless and Varsity Blues). The 2004 film on which the TV series is based is a quirky, offbeat love story starring Oscar-winner Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey as Clementine and Joel - a couple who undergo a memory erasing procedure to forget each other once their relationship goes south. The flick included a solid supporting cast of Hollywood heavyweights such as Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo and Kirsten Dunst and won an Academy Award for best original screenplay under the writing team of Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry and Pierre Bismuth.
The adaptation is in the very early stages and details are scarce, but we do know Anonymous Content is working with Universal Cable Productions on the remake and the original producer of the film, Steve Golin is back on board to produce the TV series. The award-winning writing team from the film will not be back but word on the street is Forever, Chuck writer Zev Borow is in talks to pen the script.
No news on when it will hit the small screens, but in the meantime you can always tap the movie back catalogue and watch the original flick.
