10 Movies You Didn't Know Were Becoming TV Shows
10. One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest
Ryan Murphy and his muse Sarah Paulson are at it again. The American Horror Story duo are teaming up to bring back to life the Academy Award-winning film based on the novel by Ken Kesey, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Titled Nurse Ratched, Paulson will be in the titular role as the villainous nurse overseeing a ward of mental patients.
The series will take place before the events of Cuckoo, depicting a younger version of the nurse, no doubt depicting a fall from grace character arc not unlike Breaking Bad. This being the American Horror Story and American Crime Story team, do not be surprised if the series takes a more horror slanted approach than the original dramatic film.
The series has already been picked up for two seasons by Netflix.
