Children of Men TV Series Planned
Scifi.com recently had a chat with Bionic Woman and Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eick, where he revealed he’s working on a pilot script for a tv show based on the P.D. James’s Children of Men novel. That’s the same novel that was adapted for the 2006 movie starring Clive Owen.
Â “It’s really taking root more in the origins of the novels in that it will focus on the cultural movement in which young people become the society’s utter focus,” Eick said in an interview at SCI FI Channel’s upfront presentation to advertisers in New York on March 18. “Much like our culture, whenever Lindsay Lohan does something [and] it becomes the headline of every news show, it’s about how, when you don’t have a responsibility to the next generation and you’re free to do whatever you want, where do you draw the line?”
I really really liked the movie (despite it’s rather abrupt ending), but i’m not really sure how it’d translate over into a series. I haven’t read the book however, so there maybe more scope in it than appears based on the film. It’ll be an interesting one to see how it develops. Anymore news, we’ll keep you posted!
