Off the record, on the TV, and Very Hush-Hush: 'L.A. Confidential' Might Become a Series
Now 16 years since it hit theaters, the Academy Award-winning film that really kicked off Russell Crowe's American career in rage issues may get a sequel on the small screen. Deadline writes that New Regency and L.A. Confidential author James Ellroy are shopping around a follow-up to the 1997 adaptation of Ellroy's novel, finally offering television a police crime series. Broadcast and cable outlets have reportedly already shown interest in the spec script Ellroy wrote, and it's expected the project will skip the pilot stage to go straight into production. It is not currently confirmed that the series will focus on Danny DeVito's Sid Hudgens as a nosey but benevolent wiseacre ghost helping out the LAPD in the hopes of earning his way into Heaven, nor is it yet certain the title will be Hudgens or Hell. But how about it?
