    Rashomon TV Series In The Works


    "In an age of comic book adaptations and ’80s film reboots, maybe the next popular intellectual property wave is 1950s Japanese cinema. So goes the thinking for Amblin Television, which has optioned the rights to the Akira Kurosawa film “Rashomon” to develop it into a season of TV.

    While the concept of showing one particular crime through the prism of a number of different perspectives has become less of a novelty in the nearly 70 years since Kurosawa’s legendary film, this new series will look to tell one crime in each of its 10 episodes, told from the point of view of a different character. With all the knowledge from those combined inputs, the audience will be able to gather the information necessary to arrive at the truth of what actually occurred."

    I wasn't a big fan of the original film- it's fine, mostly, just not my thing. But the Rasomon mode of storytelling has become one of the great TV cliches. To do an entire series around it sounds grim.
