Snatch TV series in the works

Guy Ritchie's Snatch is a particularly over the top gangster/heist film with a great visual style and a still amazing cast. And it's coming to the smaller screen.

Crackle has a TV series version of Snatch in the works, which plans to take inspiration from the movie while forging its own path. Here's the synopsis:

"Much like the television series, ‘Fargo,’ Crackle will carry the spirit of the setting in the original feature film, while creating a new world born from the original movie.

Informed by a real life gold bullion heist in London, the show centers on a group of twenty-something, 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.

The boys must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London’s underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend."

Mentioning Fargo would make this series in good company, but it's much harder to make a successful TV adaptation than just mention another one that happens to be great. It does sound like the story will be quite different but a lot will depend on the charisma of the acting ensemble as well as the quality of the writing.

We're going to go ahead and assume that none of the original actors are going to return. 10 episodes are planned, and there's no word on a release date.
