Netflix Are Planning to Adapt 'A Tale of Two Cities'
No, this isn't a cruel joke! Netflix are planning to adapt Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities and are in talks with Channel Four about a possible co-production. The script is being written by Alan Bleasdale who previously adapted Oliver Twist (1999) for ITV. Woo hoo! The book hasn't had a TV adaptation in over 20 years and the last film adaptation came out 50 years ago. Why that's the case I don't know because the book is one of Dickens' shorter novels and it's very cinematic. It's got action, an epic scale, romance and tragedy. So, yeah, exciting times! :)
