Crackle has ordered ten episodes of an original "Snatch" scripted series, based on the Guy Ritchie crime-comedy film of the same name.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the "Snatch" TV series is being adapted in a similar approach to FX's "Fargo," which carries the spirit of the original source material, while following new characters that did not appear in the movie.
The "Snatch" TV series will reportedly follow "a group of twentysomething up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime."
Released by Sony's Screen Gems label domestically and by Columbia Pictures internationally, Ritchie's original "Snatch" starred Brad Pitt, Benicio del Toro, Jason Statham, Vinnie Jones and Dennis Farina, and followed two overlapping plots about the hunt for a stolen diamond and a small-time boxing promoter under the thumb of a brutal gangster.
As of yet, no producers or talent have been attached to the project.
