Kevin Smith is Doing a Buckaroo Banzai TV Series



After directing a pretty great episode of The Flash this season, Kevin Smith has turned his sights on Buckaroo Banzai for the TV treatment…and MGM is doing it!

According to Uproxx, Smith pitched this to MGM and they decided to do the series:

“Basically you just do the entire movie for season one, then season two you finally do the sequel we’ve all dreamed about, Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League.”

The 1984 classic teased that sequel in its end sequence, but of course it never happened as the first movie was really just a standalone. For those who have never experienced the original Buckaroo Banzai, it’s actually going to see a high-definition Blu-Ray release courtesy of Shout! Factory pretty soon!
