Richard Gere's New Apple Series 'Bastards' Gets Aborted

The project, which was set to see the return of the 'Amelia' actor to TV, has been scrapped since the bosses at the streaming site reportedly didn't like its dark theme.

AceShowbiz - Richard Gere's return to TV has taken a hit - his new Apple series has been scrapped.

Bosses at the streaming site gave "Bastards" a straight-to-series order, but they appear to have had a change of heart.

Gere was billed to star as one of two elderly Vietnam veterans and best friends who become vigilantes after their lives are turned upside by the death of a woman they both loved.

Reports suggest Apple bosses didn't like the dark theme of the series and urged showrunner Warren Leight to focus more on the emotional bond between Gere's character and his longtime pal.

The project was based on Israeli series "Nevelot".
