Dark City Series Being Developed by Alex Proyas

During the chat, Proyas reveals that a Dark City series is in the works!

“Dark City right now is really an intriguing one to me because we’re developing a series, a Dark City Series,” Proyas explains to Lynch.

He continues, “Which we’re in the very early stages [of] but I’m having to reanalyze in order to construct a new story. I’m having to go back and kind of jog my memory as to what we actually did and what I think worked and what I think didn’t work and reevaluate my own film, so that’s been a very interesting experience as well which I’ve not done before.”

One of my favorite movies! I have close zero interest in this as I have a gut feeling it'll turn out God awful.

Yeah that movie is bomb. Not sure how you can do a TV show but I am always willing to try.

Great movie, but I don't think it's something we need to see more of.

I always liked that there was never a Dark City 2. Not everything needs a sequel or franchise, and it seemed the like the more we saw of the Dark City world, the less mysterious and interesting it would become.

Agreed with the rest of you. It was one of my favorite blind buys. I'm not sure what a tv show would cover that's necessary, but I'll remain optimistic.

Really no surprise, as the film was a big box-office failure. I loved it and saw it twice on opening weekend, but the theaters were near empty and several people walked out.

Cerebral science-fiction with a touch of noir and a hint of Dabney Coleman doesn't really bring crowds in. A shame, really.

But yes, this was a closed loop and complete story. No need for anything more.

Yeah pretty much with you on this.

I can see it being somewhat like The Animatrix, telling stories during and leading up to the end of that world/universe that took place in the movie. It doesn't have to be bad, it will just be inconsequential (unless they totally ignore the movie).

I need to go watch that movie again. I remember even watching the Roger Ebert commentary on the DVD and loving it. However, no one I know has ever even seen this movie, and it's such a shame.

This seems like the new Spawn and Crow projects - we'll hear a lot about them for several years but nothing will ever come of it.
