    Deadline is reporting that a new tv series based on Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity will be coming to Disney’s new streaming service:

    I hear a romantic comedy TV series inspired by Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel High Fidelity and the 2000 feature starring John Cusack is in early development for Disney’s upcoming direct-to-consumer service. The project, a gender-swapped take on the classic title, comes from writers Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka (Bull, Ugly Betty), the Midnight Radio producing team and ABC Signature Studios (SMILF), the cable/streaming division of ABC Studios.

    This is a great fucking idea and I'm very excited for this.

    Sounds great. The movie is one of my all-time favorites (one of the few that if I ever see it playing on TV, I'll immediately stop and watch it). Would love to see a female take Cusack and company.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    I'm an avid fan of Nick Hornby, so I'm looking forward to it.

    Juliet, Naked was not a good book. Are people also pumped for that movie?
  7. I liked the book, and yes.

    They need to adapt Funny Girl.

    Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is what I thought Funny Girl could be (but better).

    who told you this room exists?

    I'm curious to see how they recreate this from the female perspective.

    On another note, I was just looking at High Fidelity stuff a couple weeks ago and saw this deleted scene for the first time and I loved it:
