Fargo might be getting (another) TV adaptation

The Coen brothers‘ Oscar winning classic Fargo might find new life on television … once again.

According to Variety, FX is interested in adapting the North Dakota-based crime drama for the small screen.

The original picture starred Frances McDormand as the polite-but-shrewd-and-very-pregnant police officer Marge Gunderson, tasked with investigating a very strange kidnapping and a series of murders in her home town.

A pilot for a Fargo TV show was made back in 1997, starring Edie Falco as Marge. It was never picked up.

No new talent is yet attached to FX’s proposal. As you probably assumed, the Coens are not involved.

Discuss: Would you like to see Fargo as a series?
