LOVED the movie…find out the details about the show…sounds interesting. More below,
Billy Bob Thornton is set to star in the Coen brothers’ upcoming TV adaptation of their 1996 film Fargo. Thornton will play Lorne Malvo, a shiftless character who kicks off the action when he meets a small-town insurance salesman and, according to a press release, “sets him on a path of destruction.”
The 10-part limited series is independent of the film, which followed a pregnant police chief in Minnesota who tracked two incompetent criminals hired by a car salesman to kidnap his wife. The TV version will feature new characters and cases while retaining the dark humor of the movie.
