Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind is being made into a tv series.
Released back in 2004, Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind quickly became a cult classic. Now the film is ready to hit the small screen.
The Oscar-winning screenplay by Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry and Pierre Bismuth is being remade by Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series is in its early stages and Zev Borow is in talks to write the script. In addition to the Oscar win, Kaufman was described by Roger Ebert as “the most gifted screenwriter of the 2000s.”
Sources also said True Detective executive producer Richard Brown will be involved in the project. As the reboot is in very early stages, its unknown who will take over the roles of Joel and Clementine, originally played by Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet.
There’s also no word on how the narrative will go and how closely the remake will stick to the script.
The original plot for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind focuses on two former lovers who undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories. Winslet earned an Oscar nomination for her role in the iconic movie.
With so many critics citing the original film as one of the best in recent times, there’s a lot of pressure on the upcoming project. We’ve seen a lot of reboots over the last few years, some of which have been a success, while others have failed to make it past the first season.
Hopefully this latest reboot will stay true to the original and not tarnish the memory of a classic.
