eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is being turned into a tv series

The reboots just don't stop.

Steve Golin, the original film producer of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is reimagining your favourite anti-romance film for TV. He'll team up with True Detective executive producer Richard Brown for the project, but unfortunately the film's original director, Michel Gondry, isn't involved. Although The Hollywood Reporter have revealed the series will be produced by studio Universal Cable Productions, who were involved in the original film, so there will be plenty of classic flavour still in the mix. The original film was written by Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry and Pierre Bismuth, and earned the trio the Academy Award for best original screenplay in 2004.

THR also suggested that more and more studios are looking to capitalise on their "existing film libraries" to find a familiar success in a television landscape increasingly crowded by streaming upstarts like Hulu and Netflix. It would explain the wave of reboots we've been surfing for the past couple of years. 

Last month, we learnt another classic film was getting the TV treatment, Picnic at Hanging Rock. This might give that some competition for most anticipated rework of 2017.
