“Hannibal” writer-producer Bryan Fuller says he wants a reboot of ’60s spy-fi series “The Avengers”.
Fuller already has his first post-Hannibal project lined up – a TV version of Neil Gaiman’s lauded novel “American Gods”, reported Digital Spy.
“I would love to reboot The Avengers – with Eddie Izzard as John Steed. That would be wonderful.”
Fuller and Izzard, of course, worked together on “Hannibal” – where the latter played serial killer Abel Gideon.
The pair also have form when it comes to reboots, even if their last effort to revive a classic property – 2012’s “The Munsters” revamp “Mockingbird Lane” – didn’t get a series pick-up.
