Hulu’s ‘High Fidelity’ TV Reboot is Filming on the LES Tonight
They just couldn’t leave well enough alone.
The television reboot of cult classic High Fidelity – based on the 1995 book by Nick Hornby – is taking over parts of the Lower East Side today.
The requisite “no parking” signs currently dot the eastern terminus of Canal Street near Rutgers. Film shoot is tonight.
It’s indeed a “reimagining”; instead of another guy trying to follow in the footsteps of John Cusack (impossible), the 10-episode Hulu series is told from the female perspective. Zoe Kravitz will portray the “record store owner” (aka Rob Gordon character).
(As an interesting tie-in to the original, Kravitz is the daughter of Lenny and actress Lisa Bonet, who played Cusack’s ex-girlfriend Marie DeSalle.)
But does she have what it takes to sell five copies of the Three E.P.s by the Beta Band? Unlikely.
