Kevin Smith x Buckaroo Banzai


#1

This could be great.


#2

Whoa! Kevin Smith directed the 21st episode of season 2 The Flash? I’m going to watch that. I know Kevin Smith has some great comic book directing in him.


#3

What’s the deal with new TV series based on movies from 30 years ago? Apparently there will also be a new series based on the wonderful Time after Time. What’s next, Princess Bride: The Adventure Continues?


#4

thing is… those both sound fine to me. Because Netflix.


#5

So we’re past making TV adaptations of movies and into making TV adaptations of Cyndi Lauper songs? I personally don’t see how there’s enough content there to work with, but I guess I’ll have to wait and see.


#6

A new series based on the continuing adventures of Buckaroo Banzai? A bit late, but well, okay, sure!

A several-season-long remake of the movie itself? Now you’re starting to lose me.

But honestly, Kevin Smith needs to win me back after some of his most recent stuff. Bratzis??


#7

Eh, at least there are no walrii.


#8

Why do my eyes hurt suddenly? Are these tears? Oh! Oh no! It’s blood! From my eyes! This terrible spectacle!


#9

I think Kevin Smith has a higher than average chance of understanding what made the original great. I actually like the idea of making the first season a retelling of the (first) movie, but only if it actually leads to a second season which covers the events of Buckaroo Banzai against the World Crime League.

Any casting rumors/hopes/fears?

Was honestly expecting to see these gals in a line of grey wool suits. Was disappoint.


#11

Jeff Goldblum would make a great New Jersey :wink:


#12

Well, they did base a movie on Girls Just Want to Have Fun, but I don’t think it made it to a TV series.

Now that we have Lauper and Goldblum in the same thread, we could also imagine a spinoff of Vibes. As it is about pyramids and ancient civilizations, it would probably be popular among BB readers…

Seriously, though, while I can imagine stretching Time after Time into a TV series, I can’t imagine it working well. Better would be Time Bandits: The Series. It could be like a modern Time Tunnel.


#13

Sorry, not without David Rappaport. :cry: Although Peter Dinklage would make a hell of a Wally.
