There is talk that a movie may be in the works for Rome. James Hibberd from The Hollywood Reporter writes on his blog:
Bruno Heller says he wants to produce a theatrical wrap-up to his critically beloved and prematurely canceled HBO drama “Rome.”
“There is talk of doing a movie version,” he said. “It’s moving along. It’s not there until it is there. I would love to round that show off.”
Winter Is Coming: To fans of the show, this is great news. I’ve never seen it, though I have heard good things. I post this here though, because I was intrigued by this comment in the article:
HBO executives have since admitted that axing the show probably was a mistake.
Might HBO wish to fill the void left by Rome, a project they now wish they would have kept, with Game of Thrones?
