Just when you thought you’d had had plenty of superhero for the 1 week, The Tick comes crashing through your wall, courtesy of Amazon. After years of gossip, the big blue bug is finally rebooting with a new series, currently casting its Arthur.
Per Deadline day, the long-gestating superhero string has been given an airplane pilot order at Amazon under original writer-creator Benjamin Edlund and fellow authentic executive producer Barry Josephson. Patrick Warburton won’t reprise their role from the FOX iteration, likely professional producing instead, although Vinyl star Griffin Newman will play sidekick Arthur Everest, alongside Valorie Curry as their sister Dot.
So scans Deadline’s description:
In the new incarnation, the blue suit-wearing Beat is recovering from a new memory loss. He finally ends up re-teaming with Arthur to fight evil. Newman’s Arthur, played in the actual Fox series by means of David Burke, had been labeled as a schizophrenic because of his statements that wicked plans to rule the town, and no one believes him until he or she runs into Tick. Curry’ohydrates Dot Everest is a health professional who loves the girl brother Arthur to dying and worries regarding him.
Transcendence helmer Wally Pfister is in negotiations to direct your pilot, having worked since director of digital photography for The Dark Knight shows.
