The Critics Agree has exclusively learned via The AV Club that Shooter is finally being adapted into a TV show.
Like many of you, we’ve been clamoring for this since we saw Mark Wahlberg’s magnum opus in theaters. Frankly, television these days could stand to bring in more popular movie franchises. We here at TCA often find ourselves aimlessly flipping through channels, as we can’t find anything with the depth, interest and intrigue of a film like Shooter.
Will Mark Wahlberg reprise his role as the titular Mr. Shooter? We don’t know! We hope he does. But we also wonder if it’s wise for a big-time actor like Wahlberg to slum it on television. Maybe Jim Parsons can star. That guy’s simply never going to make The Leap.
