I don't know why the film and tv industry keep doing this. This time they've gone and cast Royce Pierreson as Dr. John Watson in The Irregulars.

"The Irregulars is an upcoming British-American crime drama streaming television series developed by Drama Republic for Netflix. Based on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, it features the Baker Street Irregulars working for Dr Watson saving London from supernatural elements.[2]"

Netflix are set to announce an adaptation of Harper Lee's classic, To Kill A Mockingbird. Apparently, and this is just a rumour atm circulating on Twitter, Idris Elba is starring as Atticus Finch and Benedict Cumberbatch is set to star as Tom Robinson. The plot has yet to be leaked, however, there are hints that it will contain "science fiction elements". Sounds interesting. I'll update this thread when I hear more.

Update:

SFFWorld are reporting that Netflix have confirmed that To Kill A Mockingbird takes place aboard a generation ship. It sounds like they've merged two novels here: To Kill A Mockingbird and Brian Aldiss' Non-Stop. This could be epic.

Update:

More cast info here:

Benedict Cumberbatch - Mayella Ewell

Helena Bonham Carter - Arthur 'Boo' Radley

Samuel L Jackson - Scout

Jennifer Lawrence - Jem

So Benedict Cumberbatch plays both Tom Robinson and Mayella Ewell. Which means that Benedict Cumberbatch accuses himself of raping himself. This is shaping up to be a truely modern take on a classic novel with an interesting cast.

Star Wars had one black person and he was a traitor. Later on they kind of retconned that but it was too late. They're out in space and everyone that's not a robot or a fursona is white. What's up with that?

Benedict Cumberbitch comes from a slave-owning family and should be cancelled for a remark he made a couple of years ago. I forget now what he said.

To get ready for the Netflix adaptation, you can watch the 1962 version of To Kill A Mockingbird for free here:


That version, as good as it is, seems antiquated compared to that Netflix adaptation. I mean, adaptations that stick close to the source material is old hat these days. Who wants to watch adaptations of their favourite books only to see those books faithfully recreated on film?
