Two key series that ran in the late 70’s and early 80’s are making comebacks, albeit in different ways.
“Dynasty” creators Richard and Esther Shapiro revealed that they are developing a feature film based on the popular soap opera about a wealthy oil family. The film will serve almost as a prequel of sorts with the action taking place during the 1960s and the tone akin to “Mad Men” reports Coming Soon
“It’s fun, because the fans of the show will know from the series where each of the characters end up eventually, but what they won’t know is how they get there. There will be some very unlikely twists and situations, and people will not be expecting a lot of what we’re planning…The movie will be the old Dynasty, of course, but with horns” says Richard Shapiro.
A script is currently in the works, though now studio has yet been attached
Meanwhile, ABC has officially greenlit a pilot for a small screen reboot of “Charlie’s Angels” reports Entertainment Weekly.
“Smallville” creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar wrote the pilot script while “Gossip Girl” director Mark Piznarski has been offered the gig of directing the pilot.
Drew Barrymore, Leonard Goldberg and Nancy Juvonen will executive produce.
