By Jobe! A Lawnmower Man Series on its Way?
Let me make no bones about it. I hated the movie The Lawnmower Man. I hated its sequel, too. It's just another case of a Stephen King adaptation gone awry. That being said, could a television series based on the tale actually work? Interesting question.
According to MovieHole, Park Entertainment is packaging 26 one-hour episodes of a show that, like the two Lawnmower Man features that preceded it, will combine live-action and some rather state-of-the-art special and visual effects. While the original King short story concerned a man who conjures up an unholy, autonomous lawnmower to cut a client's lawn, before munching down on the grass himself, the film version told of a mentally-retarded lawnmower man named Jobe who is coaxed into being a guinea pig for a scientist’s virtual reality experiments, ultimately becoming more intelligent in the process but also evil.
Seriously. My head hurts.
