After developing a Minority Report sequel TV series, it looks as though Fox has finally picked up the show’s pilot.
That’s right folks – the hit Tom Cruise sci-fi film Minority Report will be getting a sequel in the form of a brand new TV series. And after being in development at Fox, the studio has decided to pick up the pilot episode.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming new sci-fi show has been well-received at Fox… and has been picked up for its pilot episode.
“Fox has picked up to pilot its follow-up to Minority Report,” they revealed. “The drama, one of the hottest scripts heading into pilot season at the network, landed at Fox with a hefty put-pilot commitment with a significant penalty attached.”
Of course, this is great news for Minority Report fans, as the show reportedly picks up ten years after the events of the film – when Captain John Anderton effectively put an end to the Washington D.C. PreCrime division.
“The Minority Report follow-up takes place 10 years after the end of PreCrime in D.C., when one of the three Precogs struggles to lead a ‘normal’ human life, but remains haunted by visions of the future. He meets a detective haunted by her past who just may help him find a purpose to his gift.”
“From Amblin Television, Paramount Television and the network’s sibling studio 20th Century Fox Television, Godzilla’s Max Borenstein penned the script and executive produces. Amblin’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank executive produce. Kevin Falls (The West Wing) will serve as showrunner.”
Of course, the big question is whether or not the new Minority Report series will be any good… but with a lot of buzz surrounding its pilot script, it looks as though Fox is onto a sure thing.
For now, we’ll have to wait and see… but I personally can’t wait to see what the precogs have been up to.
