Less Than Zero TV Series Coming To Hulu

Hulu is trying its hand at Less Than Zero.

The streamer is developing a drama based on author Bret Easton Ellis' 1985 novel and subsequent 1987 feature film.

The reboot, which is in development, follows a college freshman who returns home for Christmas to spend time with his ex-girlfriend and his friend who struggles with addiction. The Hulu take will explore the culture of wealthy, decadent youth in Los Angeles.

Andrew McCarthy starred in the '87 feature film opposite Robert Downey Jr., Jami Gertz and James Spader, with Harley Peyton adapting Ellis' book; 20th Century Fox owns rights to the franchise and distributed the feature.

Ellis' book, named after the Elvis Costello song, explored themes of nihilism, with the author credited with helping to create a new culture of celebrity with figures like Paris Hilton and the Kardashians.

As Hulu searches for its next water-cooler hit following The Handmaid's Tale, the streamer is also developing a take on another seminal novel: Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man. The project, which has been in development since October, has now hired Marcus Gardley (The Chi, Z: The Beginning of Everything) to pen the script. John Callahan will exec produce the drama, with the Ralph and Fanny Ellison Charitable Trust also involved. The trust owns the book, with Hulu landing the rights to develop a series based on the 1952 novel last year. The award-winning book is told from the point of view of an unnamed African-American narrator who considers himself to be socially invisible because of the color of his skin. Here's Hulu's official logline: "Invisible Man follows an unnamed African-American narrator whose color renders him invisible. He recalls stories from his life — first growing up and attending college in Jim Crow South then living and working in 1930s Harlem."

The news comes a day after Hulu canceled drama The Path after three seasons as the streamer continues to refine its scripted roster with big swings including Castle Rock, Catch-22 and more.

Disney Says Bye To Spider-Man In Any Upcoming Films For Now

Deadline is reporting Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources said.

This comes at a moment when the last two films Kevin Feige produced broke all-time records — Disney’s Avengers: Endgame became the highest grossing film of all time, and Spider-Man: Far From Home this week surpassed the James Bond film Skyfall to become the all time highest grossing film for Sony Pictures.

Sources said there are two more Spider-Man films in the works that are meant to have director Jon Watts and Tom Holland front and center. Unless something dramatic happens, Feige won’t be the lead creative producer of those pictures.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON On August 22nd at 7:00 PM In Sacramento.

Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody’s best friend — except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.
