The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the classic Jim Carrey/Kate Winslet Sci-Fi love story is being turned into a TV series. Of course, the original maestros, Charlie Kaufman and Michel Gondry have nothing to do with the development of the show.

Writer Zeb Borow has been hired for the adaptation, his solid CV includes writing episodes for NBC's "Chuck." God help us all.

In the meantime go watch Kaufman and Gondry's 2004 film again. It really is a beauty. I actually dug up an old review I wrote of the film just to give you a taste of what I thought back in 2004:

"The colorfully eccentric world Michel Gondry has created in "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" is unlike anything you've ever seen before. It is then not surprising that the source material comes from a screenplay written by "Being John Malkovich" scribe Charlie Kaufman. The end result is one of the best romantic comedies in ages, a film that is more truthful about love and relationships than any other movie you will likely see this decade. Kaufman believes that the bitterness of a break-up overshadows what is essentially the most important part of the process; the memories that have been created. It also helps that Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet give us the performances of their careers. This a flawed but ambitiously visionary treat."
