Bradley Cooper interested in making Hyperion Movies

Actor Bradley Cooper has voiced his interest in bringing the Hyperion Movies to the big screen and is currently working his own adaptation. It's always exciting to hear about interest in making these epic books into films, but it's difficult to imagine the story being squeezed down into one or even two films. The format of the story line might lend itself better to a television series. If someone like HBO or Showtime took the lead on producing a Hyperion TV series it could be a much more fulfilling project able to go deep into the characters and story arcs. But then again seeing anything in the Hyperion universe made into film or TV show is the dream!

  1. I hope it will be made. Movies or TV Series, it would be great :) Accidentally I started reading Endymion and I love it already :)

  2. I started to reread Hyperion today and thought that it would actually make a great TV series if done right. I'd love if HBO picked it up but it's unlikely.

  3. It would certainly bring a plus for HBO even if they have already started with the Game of Thrones series, which unfortunately ended up as a medieval / soft fantasy / soap opera mini series.

  4. I was thinking that the first book could be made into a mini-series on HBO or Showtime (although I have neither network, so I wouldn't get to see it) with each of the 6 back stories taking up a full episode, followed by 3 full length films based on the remaining books.
