Conversation Starter

Hoping to strike period gold once more, AMC is looking to adapt Francis Ford Coppola's The Conversation into a television series.

Like their current critical darling and Emmy magnate Mad Men, the AMC series would be set in the not-too-distant past, in this case, the 1970's. The original Academy Award nominated classic of paranoia and wire-tapping starred Gene Hackman as electronic surveillance expert Harry Caul, whose job gets him tangled up in moral quandaries and murder plots.

Oscar winning screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspect) will be working on the script; no schedule or casting has been announced at this time.

  1. the movie bored me to tears, the show might be an improvement, but a hard stretch at this point, in my opinion.
