The Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino supernatural drama The Devil’s Advocate is set for the small screen treatment and I, for one, am glad… I actually liked the movie. Or at least most of it.
Comingsoon are reporting that “Taylor Hackford’s The Devil’s Advocate, one of the many supernatural thrillers that came out of the late 1990s, is headed to the small screen… as the basis for an upcoming NBC pilot from the film’s original producers John Wells and Arnold Kopelson. Matt Venne (Bag of Bones) is penning the script.”
In the movie Reeves was a lawyer (no, really) who was hired by a firm that is run by the devil himself, played by Pacino.
As a movie, it worked, as a TV series though, does it have the legs? We’ll all know soon enough…
