Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. It's not much, but Edgar Wright commented on the news of a US Spaced via his Myspace page... and I don't think it bodes very well:
The interesting part of that is, no-one has been in touch with me at all. Haven't deigned to get in contact. So my involvement is indeed very unclear. P.S. I can confirm too, that Simon was never contacted either. I don't really want to get involved at all, but it infuriates me that they would a) never bother to get in touch but still b) splash me and Simon's names all over the trade announcements and infer that we're involved in the same way Ricky & Steve were with The Office. Also, it's worth stressing that I will not be profiting from this reversion, nor do they have to get permission from me to make it. One more thing... I'm calling for everyone to refer to the U.S. version of Spaced as "McSpaced" from now on. I can't think of a better distillation of the whole idea.
