Yesterday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, TNT president Kevin Reilly revealed that his network decided to pass on the live-action Teen Titans show that Warner Bros. was developing. During a Q&A, Reilly went into a bit more detail as to why TNT decided not to move forward with the show.
How much of the decision not to move forward with the DC Comics project Titans, also from Warner Bros., was based on the fact that you don’t own it?
It wasn’t. Akiva [Goldsman] is a talented guy, [but] the script just wasn’t there. There is an unbelievable glut of superhero things in the market right now and if you have a really good one, clearly people are up for it. But I just don’t think that there’s a need for one that, for me, at least on paper didn’t seem to be screaming to get made.
Akiva Goldsman also wrote the scripts for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin.
