View Full Version : Rome movie adaptation in the pipeline.

2nd December 08, 03:55 AM
The creator of Rome has said a movie version of the historical series is in the pipeline.

Bruno Heller would not share plot ideas for a feature, but told The Hollywood Reporter that talks were taking place. "It's moving along. It's not there until it is there. I would love to round that show off."

The period drama, co-produced by the BBC, chronicled the rise of the Roman empire and ran for two seasons before high production costs brought the series to an end in the summer of 2006. Seasons one and two received a combined seven Emmy Awards, with HBO bosses since admitting that axing the show may have been a mistake.

"I discovered halfway through writing the second season the show was going to end. The second was going to end with death of Brutus. Third and fourth season would be set in Egypt. Fifth was going to be the rise of the messiah in Palestine," Heller said.

"But because we got the heads-up that the second season would be it, I telescoped the third and fourth season into the second one, which accounts for the blazing speed we go through history near the end. There's certainly more than enough history to go around."

This would be dope if it actually came about. Rome is my all time favorite series. This bit seems a bit gay though;

Fifth was going to be the rise of the messiah in Palestine

because that stuff didn't really happen. I wonder if he planned to give him magic powers too?

I don't see how they could keep the series going after a third season. As much as I LOVE that show, I can't imagine an AARP age Pullo and Vorenius doing all that much in the I, Claudius storyline. It would have to switch onto the next generation. I don't know if I could watch the adventures Ceasarion and Vorena the younger (she would probably be talking by then).

As for a movie, a prequel about the Gaulic wars would be awesome. I remember Caesar's book on it was chaulk full of win and awesome.

You know what needs to be done?


Yeah that's right mothafuckas; Plays, Plutarch, and the Peloponnese.

I would love to see some Pericles, some Epaminomdas, some Aristides; and Plutarch, Herodotus, and Thucydides has enough epic shit in there to make something of a series. Guys like Alcibiades and Themistocles are made for entertainment. They could do Sparta, Athens, Thebes, holy shit it would be awesome.

Epic fucking people:

Yes, lets fucking do it.

I would whip out my cock and stroke in front of an audience if they would make a Hannibal series.

A series chronicling the rise of Rome and the fall of Greece and the two wars between both powers.Or anything involving pirates.

The war with Thebes or Scythians would be great.

Fuck Greece.

You can use your tears to lube.
