Says it is shockingly loyal to the comic…
- Chew Co-Creator Rob Guillory recently spoke about the upcoming Showtime series based off of the comic. Here is what he had to say…
On Being Loyal to The Source: "We have an awesome script written by a great writer named Brian Duffield. It's shockingly loyal to the comic. All the favorite characters are there, and the tone is dead on. Stylistically, it's about as close as you can get to something as weird as Chew. So right now, we're basically going back and forth with Showtime. Network stuff, which can move super-slow. But the good news is that we're taking our time with it. If it does happen, it will be good. It won't be something we just crap out."
On The Episodes Being One Hour Long: "It got changed to one-hour episodes as it evolved, but I don't know if that was ever announced. It's just something that happens as we experiment with getting the adaptation right."
On Wanting Ken Leung For The Series: "We've been in touch with Ken Leung, and we send him books periodically. He's a fan, and if the timing came together, he would be our Tony. But it's Hollywood, and there are a million other factors. So we'll see."
