Skins Movie In The Works *Groan*
We love Skins and the last thing we’d want is for one bad decision ruin the precious memories we have of the show. So you can imagine our dismay when we heard that a movie based on the series is in the works.
We’re just curious as to why this is necessary – turning a show into a movie is usually something you do after it’s been cancelled. It’s even more odd given the fact that Skins will continue for another two years and has pulled in consistently good viewing figures.
According to The Guardian, Jack Thorne, writer of Scouting Book For Boys, has been given the job of penning a script for a Film4 movie of the show.
The film will reportedly feature characters from all four seasons, and though it would be nice to see them again, would the energy be better spent on the actual series?
And Thorne has already written five episodes of Skins but does that make him qualified to write an entire movie?
