Russ Myer’s iconic cult classic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! has miraculously survived more than 55 years without being remade, despite the likes of Quentin Tarantino being connected to the property as recently as 2008. It was a good run, but this week brings news that the ferocious go-go gang will return for more adventures of the criminal kind.
Working with his AMC overlords, The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus will develop a TV adaptation of the film through his bigbaldhead production company. Myer’s estate themselves are also on board, speaking highly of its new custodians - Janice Cowart is reported as saying: “I am convinced this team is special and can be entrusted to honour Russ Meyer’s iconic film. I am more than excited to collaborate with them alongside AMC.”
It’s early days yet, so there’s currently no casting or plot details to speak of, but we can’t imagine Reedus – who has been a fan of Myer’s movie since a young age - will be able to resist getting involved in front of the camera too. These women will need an abundance of male bones to break after all!
