Starz CEO Chris Albrecht revealed at press tour earlier this month that creative differences over the Noir live-action adaptation has the series at a standstill.

"We just can't get [Noir] creatively to a place where everybody feels good about it," Albrecht said. "I would never say that there is no chance, but it's a little more frustrating as time goes on." (Well yeah, no shit, since you decided to butcher it by removing the lesbian overtones by giving Mireille a husband you dipshit)

The Noir live-action television adaptation was green-lit for the Starz television network in June 2011. Two months later, Starz CEO Chris Albrecht had said that the show would air in summer 2012. The project was put on hold after writer Sean Jablonski replaced Steven Lightfoot, but the entertainment news website Deadline noted that the project had already incurred some production costs, including building sets.

Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, The Evil Dead, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Xena, Priest, Legend of the Seeker), Bob Tapert (The Evil Dead, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Xena, Legend of the Seeker), Joshua Donen, and Bill Hamm were executive producers with the project. Sleeper Cell creators Cyris Voris and Ethan Reiff were rewriting the script by Jablonski.

Deadline reported last month that Voris and Reiff are currently working on another project, cable station TNT's series Legends.

Thank god, now this feeble minded adaption can finally burn. Still can't believe they would butcher my favorite anime of all time like that.
