Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is getting a television reboot. The remake has the original producer Steve Golin involved, but doesn’t have the original writers including Michel Gondry, Pierre Bismuth and Charlie Kaufman on board.
The 2004 film won an Oscar for best original screenplay and became a cult favourite, as it traced the lives of a couple who erased their memories of each other after their break up. In the original run, Kate Winslet and Jim Carey starred alongside Kirsten Dunst, Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo and Tom Wilkinson. Anonymous Content have taken on the project, with True Detective executive producer Richard Brown, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Writer Zev Borow, from Forever, Chuck, will write the script for the drama. Reports say it’s in the very early stages of adaptation however, so it could be a while before it hits the small screen, or even see any other names attached. Eternal Sunshine joins a lineage of cult films getting a television series; including Lost Boys, Dynasty and Varsity Blues.
