Cameron Crowe doesn't want a 'Say Anything' TV series

Lloyd Dobler and his boombox are set to return to the screen in the form of an NBC Say Anything series—but not if Cameron Crowe has anything to say about it.

The last time audiences saw Dobler (John Cusack) and Diane Court (Ione Skye), they were happy in love post-high school graduation, but the half-hour series will pick up 10 years later at a time when the couple are long broken up but finding their way back into each other’s lives.

Crowe, who directed the original 1989 Say Anything, wants Dobler and Court’s relationship to stay in the past, though: “Regarding the announcement of a ‘Say Anything’ tv show,” Crowe tweeted soon after the news broke Monday, “@JohnCusack, @IoneSkye1 and I have no involvement… except in trying to stop it.”

EW reached out to both NBC and Crowe, but neither party currently has a statement on the situation.
