Ray Bradbury Shorts

One of the greatest authors ever to live and master of the fictional realms, Ray Bradbury is set to begin shopping around a new mini-series pitch to television networks. The plan is to make a six-hour, six-part series based on six of his classic short stories, and to get six different directors to construct them.

Bradbury, who is now 89-years-old, embarks on this new journey after an agreement was reached with the newbie movie company White Oak Films. If a network decides that they want to be a part of the project, negotiations will begin and directors will be scouted. Supposedly, the directors brought onto the project will get to choose their favorite Bradbury story to adapt into one of the segments.

Now word on what stories will be turned into the hour-long episodes at this point. Bradbury has crafted so many timeless collections of short tales in works like The Illustrated Man, The Martian Chronicles, The October Country, and even TWO separate releases that contained two completely different sets of 100 of his short stories like The Day it Rained Forever, The Fog Horn, and The Small Assassin. With this massive amount of short stories, if this series catches on, you could see it go a lot further than just the six parts. Maybe a whole new Masters of Horror type series?

Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 has been in and out of the news many times lately as Frank Darabont has been fighting to make a new movie based on the book (Read: Frank Darabont’s Adaptation Of Ray Bradbury’s ‘Fahrenheit 451′ Makes Another Charge).
