A Series of Unfortunate Events for Netflix

Postby Tyler » Tue Sep 08, 2015 6:42 am

Netflix’s new television series based on Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events now has a director and a showrunner, with Mark Hudis (True Blood) steering the program and Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) stepping behind the camera.

According to Variety, Hudis will be the showrunner and executive producer of the series, while Sonnenfeld will also act as executive producer alongside his directing role.

Sonnenfeld, perhaps best known as the director of the Men in Black trilogy, also worked as a cinematographer on some of the Coen Brothers’ early films, including Blood Simple and Raising Arizona.

The series will be produced in connection with Paramount, who also produced the 2004 film adaptation of the first three books, starring Jim Carrey

Interesting! I read most of the books but I didn't like the movie much.

How old are the books? Were they new when we were like 12ish?

As for dates, I think just 2016 is confirmed.

It has been announced that Violet Baudelaire would be portrayed by Malina Weissman, and and an unknown actor named Louis Hynes would play her younger brother, Klaus.

They better not mess this up. I hate to be mad at child actors. I'm otherwise super excited!

I have only seen the movie once, but it hurts my brain to see Count Olaf and it not be Jim Carry

I am sure IMDB is wrong, but it shows NPH in only 1 episode.

NPH is definitely in every episode. I love the narration of this show and the absolute absurdity of it.

8.8/10 with 2,500 reviews.

Wilkins, how mature is the show. Is it meant for 12 year olds?

Watching episode one now! It is very much in the spirit of the books and perfect for the same young adult audience.
