Lionsgate is looking into milking the franchises that have done it for them by turning some of their more successful films into TV series. To be honest, I think this is a horrendous idea that compromises any kind of creative integrity that the films had (if they were the sort of films that had integrity in the first place).
With that rant aside, let’s look into the films they’re considering whoring out.
Two of the options are big ensemble action flicks that allow the filmmakers an opportunity to create spin-off shows if they can’t get the main cast on board for a TV gig: The Expendables and Red.
There aren’t any details beyond that, so this is all just speculation at the moment.
What do you guys think about films-turned-television? How do you think these two films might turn out if they go down that road?
