Turns out ABC also has bought the rights to a remake with the following description:
“ABC’s take is described as epic supernatural love story about a world-famous pop star, Lark, and her anti-social neighbor, James, who happens to be from another planet. Disillusioned by the pettiness of human nature, and a resident of Earth for the past several hundred years, James has a centuries-old rule that he will never use his abilities to intervene in the lives of the people around him. But when he gets a premonition that the infuriatingly self-centered but compelling Lark is going to be murdered, James finds himself drawn into her chaotic life and falling deeply in love — just as he finally has the chance to return to his home in the stars.”The original writer of the show will be involved.
Fangirls are already up in arms and threatening to boycott 'Hollywood' for stealing the totally original idea of a human being doing stuff with an alien.
The anal anguish continues.
That could actually be really funny. James is like, 'Lark, how do I play this video game?" And she's like grab your joystick." *queue slutty music*
Or, or... They're like in a store and James is like, "For our hotdogs later we'll need buns." *queue slutty music*
Well I'm sure the writers can come up with something.
