They Live the TV series?
John Carpenter seems to be lining up a few remakes more, and the latest could well be destined for the small screen, not the cinema. They Live is a classic film about aliens taking over humanity, and one man fighting back. That one man happened to be the wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.
There's a line from They Live that I just adore.
"I've come here to kick ass and chew bubblegum…and I'm all outta bubblegum"
I used to quote that a lot when I was younger. Anyway, enough reminiscing! The film is about a man who one day discovers a pair of shades that suddenly reveal he's living in an entirely different world to the one he thought he was. The media are bombarding the world with messages such as sleep, stay asleep and submit to authority, and that many humans are in fact aliens trying to control us all. He quickly joins a resistance movement and starts fighting against this force he has obeyed all his life.
Apparently, after contacting Roddy Piper's people, Clint reveals that Piper would most definitely be involved in the series. Now that's interesting news.
I've come here to…oh, you've heard it already! Seriously though, I would love to see this. It could be a mix of V, the original and with a shake of Battlestar Galactica reimagination.
