Television studios are always putting myriad projects in development that were sourced from different mediums, from novels to comic books to movies. (And former hit TV shows, of course.) That process isn't going to stop anytime soon, either, and just this week alone, there were four announcements involving fan-favorite movies that are heading to TV in different formats, from a spinoff to reimaginings to a TV movie.

So grab your sunglasses and a slightly wrinkled dress shirt and check out some of the things we might be glued to our TVs watching in the future. Let's kick things off by kicking in the bathroom stall door.

The Nice Guys

Following his rise to big-budgetdom with Iron Man 3, Lethal Weapon screenwriter Shane Black returned to the world of "crime capers centered on two dudes that aren't extremely pleased to be working together" with 2016's The Nice Guys. But here's the twist, the Joel Silver-produced TV adaptation will exchange Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling's lead characters for two female characters, and it's supposed to be a "contemporary take," according to Variety, so it will presumably update the 1970s time period.

The Nice Girls, which is its legitimate title, is being set up at Fox, which ordered a script from 30 Minutes or Less screenwriter Michael Diliberti. Fox seems like a natural home for this, as it's where the Lethal Weapon TV adaptation landed. Sadly, Shane Black won't be involved, but here's hoping his storytelling influence will loom large over The Nice Girls if it comes to fruition.
