Proving that they know drama, and that there is no higher drama than that of a sniper, TNT has announced plans to adapt Shooter as TV series. Don’t even ask if Mark Wahlberg is going to come back to star in the TV show. That would be crazy. That would be so crazy that I…I wouldn’t know what to say.

Which is exactly why Mark Wahlberg will be staying in films and only serving as executive producer. Because the project would be lost without his guiding hand. Isn’t Wahlberg like executive producer of like four things right now, including Boardwalk Empire and the Entourage movie? He must really…produce.

Because it’s a cable drama, Shooter the TV Show will focus on the protagonist from the film, Bob Lee Swagger, who is “coaxed back into action, only to be framed for murder.” That’s gotta be disappointing for Mr. Swagger.

(Deadline)
