12 Monkeys was a great little sci-fi romp from the brilliant imagination of Terry Gilliam in 1995 and it pretty much introduced the planet to how great Brad Pitt could be. And now, almost 20 years later, it’s set to return. Sort of.
According to Dark Horizons, cable network Syfy will be making Gilliam’s movie into an ongoing TV series. Little is known about what the series will be about or indeed if Bruce Willis’ character James Cole or Brad Pitt’s Jeffrey Goines will be the focus of the show.
What is known is that producers Chuck Roven and Richard Suckle want a Battlestar Galactica-style show with a movie -length pilot hopefully being picked up for a full series.
Dark Horizons are reporting that Nikita and Terra Nova scribes Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett will pen the script with Jon Cassar (24) slated to direct.
