Robert Towne says all Chinatown prequel episodes are written…So the place is it?


Unique Chinatown screenwriter Robert Towne confirmed that each episode of the deliberate prequel collection has been written.

For some time there, we thought they actually did overlook it, Jake. However now Chinatown screenwriter Robert Towne has supplied an replace on the prequel collection he has developed alongside David Fincher, confirming that the blinds haven’t been closed on the endeavor in spite of everything.

Towne — who received an Oscar for his authentic screenplay — just lately advised Selection that every one episodes of the deliberate Chinatown prequel have been written. “All I’m likely to say is yes, all the episodes have been written for Netflix.” On collaborating with Fincher, he added, “Working with a force of nature like David Fincher, tho’ occasionally humbling, is never less than enlightening.”

Increasing the seedy world of noir basic Chinatown has been accomplished earlier than, with Towne and Jack Nicholson reuniting for 1990’s The Two Jakes, which we’ll simply say is not any Chinatown…However a prequel to the 1974 movie exploring the origins of Jake Gittes sounds promising — as long as Towne and Fincher don’t strive too onerous to tear from it. “When David and I first started talking we agreed we wouldn’t try to replicate Noah Cross [the villain played by John Huston]. But we did want to keep in mind that the crimes that history considers monstrous are those that will not remain in the past but insist on visiting the future, and I think we managed that.”

The Chinatown prequel may also discover Lieutenant Lou Escobar, performed by Perry Lopez. “Chinatown, with all its implications for an evolving Los Angeles, is central to understanding the evolving Jake Gittes, as is his friendship with and dependence on his partner Lou Escobar. It was enlightening to delve into their backstory, Escobar’s in particular. Small details that are touched on in the film are given life and breadth in a way that surprised even me.”

So when will we see the Chinatown prequel hit Netflix? That’s as massive of a thriller as anybody Towne may provide you with, as general information has been comparatively quiet since the challenge was first introduced again in 2019. Netflix has additionally remained hush on Towne’s current feedback as of now, however hopefully they provide an replace and the collection can transfer ahead.

Would you try a Chinatown prequel? Do you hope it strikes ahead as deliberate?
