Most Dangerous Game Season 2: Quibi Dealing Rights
In the interview, Nick spoke about the series rights. He said he’s dealing with taking the first rights of the show from the streaming platform. There’s a potential buyer who’s interested in creating Most Dangerous Game as a film, and it will be a big deal if they crack it. Just take those ten-minute sections and work with the composer to enhance those musical clues, get the finalized scene, and ready for action.
A little bit of effort can turn into a nine-hour and fifty-minute film that will work well. Further, it would be an excellent opportunity to reach a massive audience with a featured movie. Fortunately, Quibi also supported this idea and gave the rights to the series creator to see how his mega plan works this time.
