WB already did a foreign adaptation for it. It sucked (but is such a guilty pleasure based on how bloody it is)

It won't work for foreign markets because it literally will be so sanitized it will be boring.

Honestly, I'm on-board with it, as this shows they do trust Andy to handle the IP well. And that, it isn't exactly something that needs to be say..white-washed.

If they do this right, which with the team so-far (it also has to come down to who is going to write this..) I have not that much doubt with that it could be better than we expect.

It is going to be interesting though, how they handle a bit of the content.
