About Philip Kerr
Is the HBO version of Bernie's adventures still on tap?
It's been quite awhile since it was first announced but I've heard not a peep about it, and on Internet Movie DataBase under Tom Hanks' producer heading it is not yet listed.
From what I hear it's on the back burner for now
A shame. This would make a great miniseries, but getting the right Bernie would be tricky.
I would not hold one's breath. There are always lots of good ideas and scripts floating around, but most don't even get a chance. Also, I am inclined to say, an anti-establishment, noir detective is not in the public mood at the moment.
I feel strongly to the the contrary! Now is *precisely* the time for Bernie to demonstrate to the world that prejudice, intolerance and fanaticism don't win in the long run. And that the human spirit will survive; however often he's beaten up, shot at, drugged, seduced, lied to or betrayed - the good guy will prevail! Even if he gets sadder & wiser...
