Bruce Willis' "12 Monkeys" to Become TV Series

Posted: July 24th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Bruce WillisSubmit Comment
Syfy announced that it's working on turning Terry Gilliam's 1995 film "12 Monkeys" into a TV series. "We have a great pilot. We're now flushing out what the rest of the series might be," said the network.

The movie starred Bruce Willis as James Cole, a convicted criminal in a post-apocalyptic future where the Earth's population is forced to live underground after a deadly virus. In an attempt to earn a pardon, Cole uses the imperfect science of time travel to help collect information on the virus released by the Army of the Twelve Monkeys. The film co-starred Brad Pitt, who earned an Oscar nomination.

Producer Chuck Roven (The Dark Knight, 12 Monkeys) initially submitted the pitch to Syfy, which is planning to take "12 Monkey" straight to series. Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett ("Terra Nova") will write the script, while Jon Cassar ("24") will direct.

so true Pornfly...Why the f*ck did I get an engineer degree. Should have gone for that liberal arts degree and moved to hollywood.

I can copy and paste! Seems to be the only requirement in Hollywood these days!

Meh. Just hire Kiefer Sutherland and a bunch of Detroit denizens and call it 24 Monkeys.

Banking on brand name and just taking out the creativity...

Just something without basing the whole TV show on a movie...

It's been known to happen like in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but was an exception. The writing will be the one being showcased there and I just don't see this going good or as long as what anyone expects...maybe looked better on paper.
