And honestly, I'd rather see it not being done at all than done bad, if those are the option.

And I just realized something: if they want it to be the next Game of Thrones, they'll have to wait for the original to be over, first...

Good or bad, popular might mean enough money for a remake in our lifetime. That time around they might fix things that the first was criticised on. Not quite up to my usual standards of cynicism I know, but this sort of thing has happened before.

Another rumor in the rumor mill, from this post which laughably used my rumor-mongering as a source. In the comments:

IF they are going to make it as a tv series I think it's wise to take your time with it and hammer out most of the things that may be difficult to do. Planning how to tackle them right instead of plodding along and adress the problems of this production as they pop up along the way.

I'm sure this is the one project where you want to have thought it through a couple of times before starting mayor production.

Well in that case I was talking about the dude who made the comment. I think I am pretty dependable but there's a difference between me being knowledgeable and me talking out of my ass.
