As television’s reboot frenzy continues, Hollywood is now eyeing Oscar-winning films.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is the latest movie headed for the small screen, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, who produced the original film, is remaking the romantic drama into a TV series with studio Universal Cable Productions attached. The project is in its early stages and has not yet been taken out. Zev Borow (Forever, Chuck) is near a deal to pen the script. UCP declined comment.
The 2004 movie — produced by Focus Features, which like UCP is under the Universal umbrella — centered on an estranged couple (played by Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet) who decided to erase each other from their memories. Written by Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry and Pierre Bismuth, the film premiered to rave reviews and scored the trio an Academy Award for best original screenplay.
Golin and Kaufman are not involved in the potential series. Anonymous Content will produce the project alongside True Detective executive producer Richard Brown.
