Judy & Punch
Mia Wasikowska plays a puppeteer accused of witchcraft in the latest trailer for the medieval dark comedy, Judy & Punch.
Speaking with /Film, director Francis Lawrence (Constantine, I Am Legend) revealed he’s acquired the television rights to Chuck Palahniuk’s novel, Survivor, in which the last living member of a death cult attains international celebrity.
Weirdly, no joke, we closed to get the rights. I now have the option again for “Survivor” that we got maybe about a month ago. It’s something I want to do as a TV show. I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ve got an idea for how to do it as a TV show, and I’m talking to a writer now into adapting it and really staying true to the tone, keeping the satire and celebrity. The addiction to celebrity is so extremely relevant right now [Laughs]. I think it’s going to be really fun, and it’s one of the things I’m really, really excited about. I just got the option again.
