Netflix Plans to Develop An Adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events
The company is partnering with Paramount on this project. Back in 2004, Paramount released a film based on this popular middle grade series; that movie featured Jim Carrey as the antagonist, Count Olaf.
“A Series of Unfortunate Events tells the tale of orphaned children Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire at the hands of the villainous Count Olaf, as they face trials and tribulations, misfortunes and an evil uncle in search of their fortune, all in their quest to uncover the secret of their parents’ death. More than 65 million copies have been sold in the series, which has been translated into 43 languages and spawned board games, card games, video games and albums.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
