12 Monkeys heading to the small screen

July 22nd, 2013 by bash Comments

Terry Gilliam’s 1995 sci-fi film 12 Monkeys is heading to the small screen.

The Hollywood Reporter says that the time travel tale is in development as a series with Terra Nova writers Travis Fickett and Terry Matalas attached to pen the pilot.

12 Monkeys is set in a post-apocalyptic future where a convict, James Cole, volunteers to travel back in time in the hopes of learning how it came to be that the release of a deadly virus set the world down a path to its own near-destruction. The movie was inspired by Chris Marker’s 1962 short film La Jetée.

Chuck Roven and Richard Suckle, both of whom produced the 1995 film, are attached to the series with a 90-minute pilot currently being planned.

24 helmer Jon Cassar is set to direct.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
