Jake McDorman Limitless

Marc Webb Directing ‘Limitless’ Pilot

Limitless TV pilot

The next project from Marc Webb, who spent the last few years making the two Amazing Spider-Man movies for Sony, will be a superhero tale of sorts. But this new project won’t exactly be in the same vein he’s been mining of late.

Movies Being Adapted Into TV Shows

TV companies are going crazy trying to mine film libraries for the next big television series, because why come up with an original untested idea without an established brand name title, right? I almost included the movie to television series trend in my 9 Current Movie and Television Trends I Hate article last month, but I decided it was too soon to make that judgement.

While I’m already tired of seeing the announcements, I really loved Fargo (and I really mean LOVED — it’s my favorite television series of the year), I’m still enjoying Friday Night Lights/Parenthood showrunner Jason Katims‘ About a Boy, and I know many people who really dig Hannibal, Bates Motel, and From Dusk till Dawn: The Series. So it’s hard for me to condemn it at this point.  And yes there are also GothamConstantine and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but I consider those shows comic book adaptations.

You might be shocked to learn that there are currently over 30 television shows in development right now based on big screen movies. Which are good ideas? Which sound horrible? After the jump, I attempt to rank all of the movies being adapted into TV shows, by concept from worst to most promising ideas.

Film Title:  LIMITLESS

At some point, it’s going to be easier to name the movies that haven’t been adapted for TV. The latest film to get swept up in the big-screen-to-small-screen trend is Limitless, the 2011 sci-fi thriller. Bradley Cooper is set to executive produce the show for CBS, along with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
