UPDATE: NBC Passes On THE SIXTH GUN
It looks like NBC has decided not to go forward with a full season order on the adaptation of the Oni Press comic book series from Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurt titled, The Sixth Gun. Maybe the pilot will air at SDCC? Reaction from the creators.
NBC has declined to pick-up the option on a full season order of episodes for The Sixth Gun, which is based on the Oni Press comic book series. The announcement comes as a bit of a surprise as previous reports from the Hollywood trades seemed to indicate that the show was virtually a lock for a roster spot on the peacock network's Fall lineup. The pilot secured a talented cast that included Aldis Hodge, Laura Ramsey, Michiel Huisman, Elena Santine and Graham McTavish. With The CW's Amazon put on hold, it's looking a bit like 2012 all over again, which saw pilots for Powers, AKA Jessica Jones, Wonder Woman and Punisher all passed over. Currently, the lone hope for a new television show based on a comic book property is ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but there's been no official word yet. Should we be worried?
UPDATE: Reaction from the comic book creators.
During the darkest days of the Civil War, wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. In time, the Sixth Gun, the most dangerous of the weapons, vanished. When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing the girl. Only Drake Sinclair, a gunfighter with a shadowy past, stands in their way.
