Tradecraft: Treadstone TV Show Officially Dead

In a lengthy and very interesting interview with Deadline's Mike Fleming, The Bourne Legacy screenwriter/director Tony Gilroy confirms that the Anthony Zuiker Treadstone TV series first mooted in September of 2010 is officially dead. In fact (as speculated that November), it was a condition of Gilroy's coming aboard Legacy. I suppose he didn't want anyone else messing up the mythology he was trying hard to craft. I can understand that, but I still think it's too bad. I would have loved a weekly dose of Ludlum-style action. Anyway, this seems to set the record straight after Zuiker gave some (evidently false) hope that the project might still be percolating in December of 2010.
