FARGO heading to the small screen

It appears as though MGM is in the mood to do nearly anything to get back on the right side of their finances.

After a much talked about bankruptcy case, the studio has gotten back in the film releasing game, but are looking to turn one of their critical sacred cows into one of their financial cash bovines.

Variety is reporting that MGM and FX are currently in talks to bring a television series based on the beloved Coen Brothers film, FARGO (the pair’s very best film, in this writer’s opinion), to the small screen.  No other details have really been revealed, but we do know the film follows a detective in North Dakota, and all the weird things that happen in her wintery hometown.

As an admittedly huge fan of the film, and of FX’s recent TV output, I do have full faith in both parties involved here. I think this could be quite a wonderful expansion upon a great universe, and one that I can’t wait to check out.

About Joshua Brunsting

Born in the tiny Michigan city known as Holland, and raised in the even smaller city known as Saugatuck, I have been a film geek for the majority of my life, and have known film was my passion ever since the final frame of THE LION KING. I’m a romantic with a thing for 60’s pop music (preferably French), John Keats poems, and an even bigger thing for film noir. Currently a Journalism Major at Grand Valley State University, I am using my love of film, and my deathly, ninja-like, skill behind the keyboard to slowly take over the world. When I’m not writing about or watching film, I’m listening to music, particularly from the likes of TV on the Radio, Best Coast, and Semi Precious Weapons. I play the ukulele, and I also have a deep and intense love for Gustavo Santaolalla and Ennio Morricone, but then again, who doesn’t. I was drum major for my high school marching band for two years, I’m one of the four people who actually watched Dollhouse, and my favorite film of all time is Godard’s BREATHLESS. I’m a wannabe screenwriter, a wild thing, a nerd, a geek, and most importantly, I’m a lover of film. Oh, and I want to be Captain Planet when I grow up.
