English HEADHUNTERS Remake Transforms Into An HBO Series

Now ALL the heads will be hunted.

If you like non-bad movies and haven't seen Norwegian thriller Headhunters yet, I highly recommend you bop over to Netflix Instant and fix that immediately. I can't promise it will be the best movie you ever see, but it's right up there with Slumdog Millionaire, Sleepaway Camp 2, and Schindler's List when it comes to gross poo-poo submersion scenes. Those who have a fetish for well-clothed blond people should really enjoy it as well.

Supposedly, Headhunters was headed for an English language feature length film remake, but instead it looks like it will become a series on HBO instead. While this is welcome news, I guess, I'm also a little curious about how much time we can really spend watching a short nerd get chased by a deeply attractive murderer. Perhaps I should read Jo Nesbø's book to find out. I feel not knowing how to read has probably held me back from a lot of important info like that.

We'll just have to see how this shakes out. The pilot will be written by True Blood's Alexander Woo. Having never been able to look at more than two minutes of True Blood without making really nasty faces and changing the channel in disgust, I can't tell if that's a good or bad thing.
