10 Movie-To-TV Projects We're Excited About | Fargo
Fargo

Stage: Pilot

How would it work? Think Northern Exposure mixed with something a little more twisted.

What to say about it: Joel and Ethan Coen are spearheading a new attempt to bring the adventures of quirksome sheriff Marge Gunderson to the small screen via FX. Noah Hawley will carry the day-to-day show-running load if it makes it beyond the development process. We say new attempt, because one was already tried in 2003 with Sopranos star Edie Falco taking over Frances McDormand’s Oscar-winning mantle. Though a pilot was produced, it was never aired except on US cable channel Trio’s Brilliant But Cancelled run.

Possible casting: Falco’s not available as she’s still busy on Nurse Jackie, so how about Amy Ryan?

Possible tagline: "You betcha!"

4 Isn't S.H.I.E.L.D meant to be set in a totally diiferent "Universe" to the MCU?
Last I heard Kevin Fiege was adamant that the TV shows based on Marvel Characters (Hulk especially) would have absolutely no relation to the films. Basically the same way that Marvel comics and Ultimate Marvel comics take place in different realities. Have I missed him giving up on that? More

Was excited when About a Boy popped up but that sounds bad. It could do with a mini-series to flesh out the parts of the book that the film deviates from, but just to take the concept of man-befriends-boy? Why don't you just get rid of Alan Cryer and have One And a Half Men? More
