Time Bandits is a cracking movie. It’s one of those movies I remember adoring as a child, long before I knew who Terry Gilliam was. And I still love it today.
And the great news? It looks like Gilliam is planning a TV series based on the movie. Which could work really, really well.
Speaking to The Guardian, the director confirmed that it’s a real possibility: “We are involved in two possibilities – one, a TV series based on Time Bandits, another based on a script Richard LaGravenese and I wrote after Fisher King, called The Defective Detective.”
So there is a very real possibility that Randall, Fidgit, Strutter, Og, Wally and Vermin could be on our TV every week? Running from the dark lord who is chasing them through history after an artifact they stole? Visiting famous people and events through time and, indeed, space?
Well, that idea makes us very happy, indeed.
If there’s more info, we’ll bring it to you as soon as we get it…
