Taika Waititi To Write & Direct Time Bandits TV Series

Our eyebrows raised last July when we learned that Apple had landed a deal to turn Terry Gilliam 's cult fantasy time travel heist road movie Time Bandits into a TV series. We were heartened to learn that Gilliam would have input, and we're further happy to report that Taika Waititi has signed up to write and direct the pilot for the series.

And even when he does try to make things better (such as reanimating the dead), it all goes comically wrong.
