A week ago I learned that in late 2020 Netflix had dropped their plans for a Button Man movie.

Apart from being a little put out that it took so long to inform us, having read the proposed script I am not overly upset that their film will not be made.

The possibility of a Button Man film has been bouncing around for ten years or so with three or four (I lost track) different companies buying the rights then changing their mind. The experience has left me feeling a little detached from it all - the prospect of our name in lights no longer as attractive or exciting as it once seemed. I believe there are or could be interested parties who might start the magic roundabout again and if they do will, when I know, let you know.

Hi Arthur,

This is a shame, however as the script sounds wanting maybe it's as well - glad to hear it's not a completely lost cause though.

Always thought Mazeworld would make a spectacular series or film with a Game of Thrones-style depiction ( for the "fantasy" world anyway).

Hope all's well!

Hullo Andy,

well the idea of a Button Man movie has bounced back before so happen it will again. There are people trying.

I'm with you on a Mazeworld film - or TV series . That's something I would watch even if it had nothing to do with me .

All is well thanks. You too I trust.

Ah dammit.  That is disappointing.  Let us hope Mazeworld gets the green light instead, although obviously both deserve to be on the screen.

Hullo Chris,

apart from one query years ago there has been no suggestion of a Mazeworld movie except from me so even the suggestion of a green light for it is a little previous.

As for Button Man, there is still some possibility. We shall see.
