Because that sounds like a GREAT IDEA. What is wrong with executives in charge of this stuff? This is going to be TERRIBLE. The only reason it worked in the movie was Patrick Swayze and Whoopi Goldberg (sorry, Demi).
It was announced on Tuesday that Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner will write a pilot for a prospective television series based on the movie.
‘We are thrilled to collaborate with Akiva and Jeff, two deeply creative and accomplished talents, on the television adaptation of this classic supernatural drama,’ Amy Powell, president of Paramount Television said in a statement,
Goldsman’s previous screenwriting credits include A Beautiful Mind and I Am Legend, while Pinker has substantial television experience on shows Fringe and Alias.
Ugh. I just don’t like this idea. UNLESS they get the bad guy (who is now Fitz on Scandal) to come back as the bad guy. Because I have totally hated him since then.
