It only took 16 years, but Fargo - like The Beach - is being plundered for the Telly treatment. Who said there were no new ideas anymore *tumbleweeds*
Deadline.com reports that "FX has closed a deal to develop Fargo, an hourlong project (hopefully sans woodchipper scenes) loosely based on the Coen Brothers’ 1996 comedic crime drama. The Coens will serve as executive producers on the project, which will be written/executive produced by The Unusuals and My Generation creator Noah Hawley."
This isn't the first time they've tried to adapt Fargo for TV: "MGM TV first attempted to adapt Fargo in 2003 with a pilot starring Edie Falco (Sopranos, Nurse Jackie) and directed by Kathy Bates, which was done without the Coen brothers' participation." That obviously didn't got too well.
The following scene from the original film doesn't feature Steve Buscemi visually, but you get to find out quite a bit about him.
