Actually, we've written Time Bandits for television. Charles McKeown and I have just finished the story (pause, with trepidation), 'cause Hallmark has bought Time Bandits... I've agreed to be in creative control of this thing. So we wrote Time Bandits, these two, two-hour specials. Kevin is now in his middle-thirties and he's got a couple kids. And life has never been as exciting as it was then. And that's where it starts.Hallmark confirmed the project the following year, describing it as a four-hour miniseries... and then nothing was heard of it ever again. Gilliam first talked about working with Virgin Comics in 2006, but Monday's Lying In The Gutters column from Johnston was the first mention of Time Bandits II being amongst the properties that he was working on for the publisher, just in time for the company to go under. So where do the Time Bandits go from here? There are probably numerous companies who would love to publish a Time Bandits II comic (Boom! Studios, IDW and Oni all spring to mind as potentials), but it all depends on whether Gilliam wants to try to bring the story back to life for a fourth time. Perhaps this was just an idea whose time never came.
