One of my all time favorite films is getting a tv series! Coen brothers are executive producers.

The 10-episode limited series will follow an all-new "true crime" story with a new case and characters, all steeped in the humor, murder and "Minnesota nice" of the original. Thornton stars as Lorne Malvo, a decidedly more serious heavy than the one portrayed by Steve Buscemi in the feature; Sherlock's Freeman steps into the role of the bumbling salesman, Lester Nygaard, that was played by William H. Macy. Newcomer Allison Tolman brings a new twist on McDormand's clever cop.



Hawley noted that the series, which he approached as a 10-episode movie, will stand on its own for anyone who has not seen the original Fargo.



"After a season or two of the show, people who see the movie might say that was a great episode of Fargo. Each season is a separate true crime story from that region. The movie now fits into the series as another true crime story from the region," Hawley said. "I don't think you need to it watch before [watching the series], but I think you should watch it because it's a great movie, but you don't need to."



Producers noted that the Coen brothers -- who don't typically produce other people's work -- were given the choice to put their names on the FX drama and were impressed by Hawley's script. (The showrunner penned every episode of the series.)



"TV is not their medium as they've said, and they told me to go ahead and make my show," he said. "We showed them the first show and Ethan said, 'Yeah, good.'"

I had kinda heard about this a while back, but had no idea Billy Bob was signed on to it. That's extremely promising.

The movie was really good but I don't like the series at all.

 

Everybody is talking about the acting but frankly it's not that great IMO.

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

I like the show more than the movie. I think FX has done a great job with it.
