Crackle Orders 10 Episodes of Drama 'Snatch' Based on the 2001 Film

Crackle is pulling from the library of its parent company, Sony Pictures, for its next original drama series. The online streaming service has today ordered 10 episodes for a series adaptation of Snatch, the 2001 film from Guy Ritchie.

Inspired by the events of the movie but centering on new characters and plots, Snatch focuses on a group of 20-something up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime.

No executive producers or cast are currently attached to the project. It remains unclear if Ritchie - who wrote and directed the film - will be involved in the series adaptation.
