Cult Movie 'Time Bandits' Is Becoming a TV Series
Apple just acquired the rights to turn the cult comedy into a TV series, with Anonymous Content, Paramount Television, and Media Rights Capital producing. Gilliam will be a non-writing executive producer.
In the film, a boy named Kevin joins seven dwarves who've stolen a map that charts holes in the space-time fabric. This allows them to jump through time and plunder legendary treasures, which meant the movie hopped from the time of Napoleon to the Titanic.
We imagine the series will feature the bandits jumping from one historical adventure to the next. Famous (or not so famous) guest stars TBD.
