Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles optioned by Paramount

by on Apr.12, 2011, under Movies

Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles, which was previously made into a TV mini-series by NBC in 1980, has been optioned by Paramount for a feature film. The option was previously held by Universal starting in 1997, with various people attached over the years including Steven Spielberg, but they never got the project going. Note that this doesn’t mean it is any closer to production – just that a new studio is holding on to the rights.

The Martian Chronicles is a complex story – can it be done in a feature film’s time limits?
