Warner Bros picks up post-apocalyptic spec script The End from Heroes writer Aron Eli Coleite

Oct. 26, 2011by: George Merchan

While NBC's "Heroes" turned out be kinda shitty, perhaps series writer and prodcuer Aron Eli Coleite will have better luck with THE END.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros has picked up Coleite's post-apocalyptic spec script, a science fiction/drama that "focuses on three completely different storylines that are interconnected by the fact that the players in each one are trying to reconcile the fact that the world is going to end. There is a veteran broadcaster in London, a 16-year old girl and her boyfriend in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and a devoted family man in Shanghai. They each try to make peace with their lives before an interstellar event ends the world in just six hours."

This would mark Coleite's first feature film writing credit. His previous work inlcude "The River" and "Crossing Jordan", two shows most of us have probably never seen.

I have to disagree on Heroes. While it had its flaws, it was far from being shitty and is a lot better than most of the crap on now. There was and is nothing else quite like it on television and it was cancelled just as things were going to change in a big way for the world and characters.
I think the show suffered greatly in season 2, with the short order of 11 episodes that came about due to the writers' strike. From there, it picked up greatly and led to a magical fourth season. Each

Each season had a theme and a purpose while still retaining ties to earlier seasons. But alas, the viewership slowly started declining since season 2. Let's face it - many shows have fantastic first seasons and there will never be another season quite like the first season of any show. People need to learn to stop comparing.

Sounds like a cool movie. And yes, Heroes was indeed a shitty show. Started out okay, but ended with way too many characters crap stories, and had one of the worst tv theme songs ever.

Interesting premise (not original, but definately interesting). But regardless, shit writers write shit films. When will y'all ever learn, its just so damn predictable.

Last Night

This sounds exactly like Don McKellar's Last Night. Here is the premise from imdb.com: A group of very different individuals with different ideas of how to face the end come together as the world is expected to end in six hours at the turn of the century.
