Earlier this month, Spike Lee reportedly inked a deal to revamp his breakthrough film, She’s Gotta Have It, by creating a TV show based on the flick. Obviously, this won’t be the first time we’ve seen a series that’s been adapted from a popular movie. However, we have to be real — those shows don’t have the best track record.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
We’re as tired as anyone of Charlie Sheen and his Violent Torpedo Of Truth tour, but as pop culture nerds who get nostalgic for our youth, our ears perked up when we heard some of the tidbits from Charlie’s latest show. While performing in Toronto this week, Charlie reportedly divulged that the first (of many, um, lucky) lady celebs that he had sex with was Jennifer Grey, his co-star in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. We wonder if he called her Shauna?
Sheen also said on stage that his very best friends in the world are Sean Penn, Nicolas Cage and his dad, Martin Sheen. We know for a fact that Sheen is close with Cage and his father, but the Sean Penn thing seems weird. Like how Lindsay Lohan says she’s best friends with James Franco. Of course, given that we don’t really believe much of what Sheen says, all these things could be untrue (and Ferris Bueller and Sean Penn would remain in our good graces), so believe what you will, this is a crazy person we’re talking about.
