"Charlie’s Angels" is coming back to TV. It will be rebooted to be grittier. Okay, I have no idea if that’s true, but if I had to bet, I’d say “grittier” is in the mix here.
"MacGyver" is also returning.
Since everything from the 70s is hot - the 70s were so cool, you know! They were simple, happy times - they’re also redoing “Logan’s Run.”
"Logan's Run" is best remembered as the 1976 film starring Michael York, Jenny Agutter and Farrah Fawcett . . . The project had been set up at Warners since the mid-'90s but heated up in 2004 when Bryan Singer signed on to develop and direct with an eye toward a 2005 release. Singer had begun previsualization work on the project before he bolted to do "Superman Returns" for the studio.
I want a job where I get paid for “previsualization work,” which I’m guessing consists of sitting around talking about how things will look. “So I see this as being like in the future -”
“Which means we can go for like a Star Trek look, lots of white, everything’s smooth, or we can go for grittier.”
“Since Logan has to leave the city and go into the outside world, we could save grittier for that.”
“So smooth for the interiors, gritty for exteriors.”
“I think we have it. Well, we’ve earned our ten thousand dollars for the week. You want to snag the waitress and get the check? I’m due over at Fox for some mid-visualization work on Soylent Green.”
“How’s that going?”
“Well, they narrowed the green down to six shades, and they’re bringing me in to consult on the final choice. It’s hard to decide which one really says ‘Secretly, it’s people.’”
“That’s why they pay you the big bucks.”
