Ask a decent sample size of what the best crime movie of all time is, and many people will say Chinatown.
The movie, which was originally released in 1974, memorably starred Jack Nicholson as private investigator Jake Gittes and Faye Dunaway, directed by Roman Polanski.
Now we’re hearing that Netflix is developing an origin series, which will tell stories of a Jake Gittes during his early days as a private investigator.
To say this is exciting news is an understatement. Who will play Gittes? What will it be like?
Of course, this isn’t the only high-profile crime origin story in the pipeline.
HBO will be releasing a rebooted Perry Mason series – starring Matthew Rhys – next year.
