It would give them a chance to flesh out the build up to the conclave, much like the book did. Delve more into how the Riffs came to power. Answer long thought over questions like who was Luthers boss. Was there any police corruption involvement.

The writers/producers need to fully research the subject and hopefully use material that we havn't had access to (like original gang colors designs ect). I still think some gangs have been wrongly identified all these years.

Keep the devorzon-esq synth score like the rockstar game did and keep the era set in the 70s

Hardest part will be an all new cast. Do they try to get actors with a new persona take on the characters or look for actors who look similar to the originals?

Another big problem will be the unability to use the original warbird patch.

What will be cannon and what will be dismissed?

Now, now, don't be too rash! Whatever they do, it will be a stand alone piece of work - we'll always have the original in all it's glory - nothing will be able to tarnish that! Listen, I'm excited!! What's the worst that could happen?? HA! It can only help raise awareness amongst the young about our little cult movie, no?? :D

You talkin' to me? ;) It would be cool if they kept it as true to the original style as possible, but I suspect we won't get our wish :( Conversely, what would be the point of doing this if not to reinvent it(?)

IF there is any political correctness in this take on the iconic film, then forget it.

Lets see how it goes.
What's the matter - goin' faggot?

I'm sure we could survive without the "f-word" and still have a great series on our hands, no? :D

This is pretty exciting news. In a big way, I'd look forward to something like this. If done the right way,
it could definitely be awesome. The potential to screw it up though, and tarnish the greatness of the
original is fairly substantial, IMHO. Scary.

Are these Russo brothers true fans and lovers of the original film, or are they just a couple of hired guns,
who are going to end up butchering the legend of one of the best, most iconic and unique films ever made?

Possible pros:

If it's a faithful recreation of the original (same set and setting, characters - good casting/writing, attention to
detail), them I am down.

The potential for fleshing out all of the unknown and murky details of the original, by being able to stretch things
out over many hour long episodes is intriguing and exciting.

Could be a great new series, and introduce more people to the greatness of the original!

Possible cons:

Just that they could produce an absolute pile of rubbish. Please take the original story, characters, time, place and style, and do it
justice. Please don't make a stupid Matrix/CGI, shallow and ridiculous piece of krap!!! Also please don't update the characters
and make them all PC and like they live in this time. They lived in the 70's/80's, in NYC. Keep it that way please!

I'm definitely going to be following this no matter what though. I can't wait to see how this develops. :)

I don't see any recent news on this. I wonder if it's still going to happen?

Anybody know anything new about it? Send the word...

Thanks for sending. I've read pretty much all of those. They all seem to date from July 5th!

You would think there would be some updates by now if this is moving forward. Maybe they dropped the ball, made an error?
