The awesome 1995 “12 Monkeys” adaptation is getting the small-screen treatment, and director Terry Gilliam isn’t too thrilled about it, calling the endeavor “a very dumb idea”.
ScreenDaily clarified with Gilliam that he won’t be involved, getting these delicious quotes out of him: “I know nothing about that. That’s just ridiculous,” he states. “It doesn’t have anything to do with me and no-one has contacted me.”
Asked his thoughts on a TV spin-off, he added: “It’s a very dumb idea. That’s what I think. If it was going to be any good it would have to be written by David and Janet Peoples, who wrote the film, otherwise it would just be another version of Time Bandits.”
He ended with a little gem in reflecting back on his 1995 cult classic starring Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt: “The script was just wonderful and the cast turned out to be just brilliant – and I didn’t fuck it up too badly.“
