Adapting successful Asian movies into Hollywood blockbusters is pretty common these days. So in a strange twist we hear that China plans on taking the popular TV series Prison Break and make it into a movie.
According to The Beijing Morning Post, the Zhongbo Media Group has acquired adaptation rights from Fox to make a 200-minute film based on the popular series, which has just been recommissioned for a third season Stateside.
I am not a fan of prison break but I know a lot of people who are. The show looks to be getting some tweaks to appeal to the Chinese market.
I didn’t see that coming.
