Rashida Jones, David Oyelowo Join ‘Wool’ Series Adaptation at Apple
By - misana123
Holy fuck, we're finally getting a Wool adaptation? And it's on Apple?! Fuck yes.
Insanely high production values with a great story, if they don’t screw this up somehow I envision something kind of amazing.
I'm always so happy when something gets an adaptation and it's not Netflix.
I've been waiting for this to happen for what feels like forever. I thunk Ridley Scott had the rights forever ago and it just died.
I have no problem with Netflix, I think they have a ton of fantastic content. But if I had to chose which service I'd want this on, it'd be Apple. That means it gets an enormous budget, will have big name talent behind it and guarantees multiple seasons, since Apple is doing what Netflix did when they were just starting with original content and that's greenlight multiple seasons for all your IPs, since there isn't enough to start cancelling yet.
Are these the books that were self-published by some dude and they sold a bunch?
Yes. Hugh Howey. The books were very solid and will make good tv fodder.
He sold them for something crazy like $1 each . I paypaled him beer money while he was writing the series and he replied with a short thank you letter. I’m happy for him.
Up until a month ago, I didn't know Rashida Jones's parents are Quincy Jones & Peggy Lipton.
Michael Jackson's monkey bit Rashida Jones at Neverland. How have you missed that story?
That happened in 1981? I was 10 years old, so yeah I missed that bit of gossip.
I like seeing Rashida in dramatic works, she was solid in The Social Network.
Far better than seeing her in Expedia commercials.
lmao. She was in it for like 90 seconds
And? Doesn't mean she wasn't solid in her brief scenes...
What a bizarre thing to say.
Don't be a dick, if you think a cameo bolsters your point then I don't know what to say. Also, nah - she wasn't. Your standards are too low.
So, to finish: work on critical thinking - obviously no one should think a cameo is equivalent to a leading dramatic role yet for some reason, you do and are a dick about it.
If she’s good in a brief / limited role then this one should be a decent fit
Lol you tell me not to be a dick then assert my standards are too low because I used a cameo as an example of why I like her in dramatic roles haha
So to finish: work on not being an arrogant prick? Thx.
Jenna, very wool!
Ahh! I loved this series!
I'm super excited about this, Loved these books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This will probably be decent, but I'm still not getting Apple+
I think its more and more worth it to just sub for a limited time and then binge all the good stuff
is Rashida Jones gonna be playing the female MC (forgot her name)? Would like to see her in a starring role finally, where she's not just "handsome male character's girlfriend".
why do i hate her so much? No idea why. Something about her just seems smug.
Jealousy because she makes a pair of $6.95 glasses look so good.
I hope it's the same universe but not the same story, Wool was great but I wanted to explore the silo more.
