LA Confidential TV series on cards

Kim Basinger won an Oscar for her role in LA Confidential

An LA Confidential sequel is in the pipeline, but this time it will be a television series.

The hit novel by James Ellroy was turned into a 1997 film starring Russell Crowe, Kevin Spacey, Guy Pearce and Kim Basinger, and now Deadline is reporting that a follow-up is being made for the small screen 16 years later.

Author James has apparently come up with the concept for a sequel as a drama series and it is now being pitched to broadcast and cable networks and "emerging distribution platforms".

It isn't known whether the original stars of the Academy Award-winning movie will appear in the series, which is said to continue the themes and stories from the 1950s-set murder mystery.

LA Confidential, which also featured David Strathairn and Danny De Vito, was critically acclaimed and won a host of accolades, including a best supporting actress Oscar for Kim.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
