According to Deadline, Ridley Scott is in early negotiations to direct a movie-adaptation of the 60s TV show The Prisoner.

Well, chalk this one up on the list of things we never expected to hear today. After trying to make a TV breakthrough over a decade ago on channel formerly known as Sci-Fi, cult classic Tremors is heading to TV once more: but this time, it’ll wield the unstoppable star power of Kevin Bacon himself.
In 2007, a home video of a baby dancing to Prince’s 1984 masterpiece Let’s Go Crazy was uploaded onto YouTube.

Lo de Sony va a más. Y lo peor: no da muestras de que vaya a acabar pronto.

On the surface, dark feature-length tales of classic monsters and televised, laugh-tracked 30 minute (or 20 if we're counting commercials) sitcoms may seem pretty far apart, but there might be some lessons for the movies to draw.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Universal's just hired a slew of writers for their upcoming reboot of the classic monster films.
