Is there a TV series in the works based on The Lawnmower Man?!

I know there's some fans of Brett Leonard's THE LAWNMOWER MAN out there right? Come on, it's a cult classic!

Well for those of you who know what I'm talking about, you're in for a treat! The folks over at Moviehole are dropping word that there's a "Lawnmower Man" TV series in the works! Seriously? Seriously!

Now while the classic sci-fi romp is indeed based on a Stephen King short story the film adaptation and it's sequel strayed away from the plot quite a bit. Who wants to watch a dude eating grass anyway? Word has it this new series will follow a plot more in lines with the first two adaptations, which read a little something like this:

The film version told of a mentally-retarded lawnmower man named Jobe who is coaxed into being a guinea pig for a scientist’s virtual reality experiments, ultimately becoming more intelligent in the process but also evil.

Now apparently Park Entertainment are packaging 26 one-hour episodes for "The Lawnmower Man" series with David Titcher already penning the pilot, which will fall somewhere between action-adventure and science-fiction. They unveiled the project at Cannes.

So what do you guys think?? Would a "Lawnmower Man" TV series work? Spit some bullets below and let us know how you're feeling about this one was we wait for more news to spill our way.
