IndieWire recently asked critics to pick the Best Movies That Should Be Made Into TV Shows. Of all the movies suggested, I liked the idea of Walter Mosley’s Easy Rawlins Devil in a Blue Dress being turned into a series. If it did well then other Easy Rawlins’ yarns would be ripe for the picking.
If I was to suggested movies that would make great tv shows, I’d suggest these three for starters…
- The Expendables (where team members were actually expendable)
- Sin City (using Miller’s stories)
- Night of the Living Dead (focus on different stories/casts each season from the first few nights of the zombie outbreak)
