Here is a review : https://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsr...andits-ii/

From what I can gather, it looks like Charles McKeown went solo on the script, it was written in Summer 1997, Gilliam at the time was in America filming Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
More details/confirmation, apparently :
Quote:Word on the street is Wellywood will have an injection of stars this August with Taika Waititi's Time Bandits ready to start filming in the capital.

Paramount TV Studios confirmed to Spy, the Kiwi star is co-writing and directing the pilot of the Apple television series adaptation of the 1981 Terry Gilliam-directed movie, but could not comment further at this time.
Apparently confirmed in the new issue of Production Weekly, with a UK shoot this time : https://twitter.com/ATVPlusNews/status/1...9041459201
Quote: Clement's current focus is co-writing a TV series adaptation with Waititi and Iain Morris based on the 1981 Terry Gilliam-directed film Time Bandits, which is in development with Apple and likely to begin filming in August.

In April, Waititi visited Larnach Castle, Wedderburn and Glenorchy, and was also pictured in Dunedin with Clement, prompting speculation it would be shot in Dunedin.

''We start filming in a couple of months,'' says Clement. ''I'm writing a couple of other projects, but Time Bandits is taking up all the energy at the moment.''
Seems like Jemaine Clement has a more prominent role in this than Waititi.
New small update, and confirmation, by Taika Waititi :

Quote:“I’m going to be in New Zealand from August until the end of the year with ‘Our Flag Means Death’ and ‘Time Bandits’ and during that time I will still be writing. I’m still trying to figure out what the story is.”
