News about the "A Series of Unfortunate Events" netflix cast has been making the rounds on the internet.

This is after it was reported that the previous film is set to be remade into a TV series and as reported by Engadget, the only company that was able to get and secure the rights for it was Netflix.

The upcoming series will be a live-action adaptation, just like the film. The whole franchise is based on the novel titled, "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events," that sold numerous copies after its release and was considered a classic from thereon.

Considering that it has been 10 years since the film's release, fans are assuming that the "A Series of Unfortunate Events" netflix cast will be changed and will not be similar to the casting of the film. However, they believe that Jim Carrey will be tapped to reprise his role.

As known to the public, Carrey played the role of Count Olaf in the film. Olaf's role is to rip the Baudelaire siblings of their riches that was left by their real parents. The Baudelaire siblings were orphaned and were left to the care of someone who Count Olaf killed. After that, they were left alone to take care of their own selves.

Daniel Handler, who is the author of the original book, previously released a statement about the upcoming series, as quoted by the source cited above. 

"After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books," wrote Handler.

As to who is set to direct the series, we have yet to find out, but fans are keen on petitioning for either Zack Snyder of Tim Burton to direct the upcoming show.

Confirmation about the rumors surrounding "A Series of Unfortunate Events" netflix cast has yet to be released as well.
