JASON SEGEL TO WRITE ‘THE WIRE’ MOVIE
Look I understand the misgivings. The Wire is probably the greatest drama in television history. I freely admit I was nervous about tackling the material but I’m confident audiences will respond positively.
I never really wrote it with any particular season in mind. Basically my version is based around Jimmy McNulty and some of the other characters will make brief appearances.
Oh none of them will be returning. That was never the intention. Don’t get me wrong I admire the work of those people but I wanted to take things in a different direction.
Kermit the Frog
I know right. I’m so excited!
Ah come on man it will be great. Wait until you see Animal as Stringer Bell and Fozzy as Carcetti. You’ll love it I guarantee.
I understand your reservations I really do but you know, I wrote The Five Year Engagement and surely that proves I have the chops.
Fine, that wasn’t your bag but you can’t deny The Muppet movie was great.
He is!..Man I’m so excited I can barely stand it.
Thanks amigo. Wow that was a great interview. Do you want to go grab a beer and talk some more. I think we really bonded.
Ok cool. Another time then I’ll call you.
