*WARNING spoiler alert! 

If you haven't finished the S-Town podcast, we'd hate to ruin it for you. 

 

If you are one of the 10 million fans that downloaded the S-Town podcast, well this news could excite you. 

S-Town host Brian Reed spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and did reveal that he is interested in bringing the tale of John B McLemore to the screen - either TV or film. 

During his interview, Reed said 'I’m interested in trying other mediums for sure. But we haven’t thought about that too deeply yet.'

Reed also admitted that he did not expect S-Town to turn out like it did, and certainly wasn't anticipating the full podcast series that it evolved into. 

'I was talking to John and looking into this potential murder while doing many other stories. It was never like, “This needs to be a story. But this guy was just kind of wedging his way into my life, and I was just not bored. I liked talking to him, and what if the things he was saying that were going on were going on? After he committed suicide, it was a period of, “Should we keep doing the story? What is this exactly?" '

We'll keep you posted if we hear anything further!
