The show appears determined to expand the story told in Terry Gilliam’s film, with Aaron Stanford (Nikita, Pyro in the X-Men films) playing the Bruce Willis role of Cole, who travels back in time from 2043 in order to locate the source of a plague that will all but wipe out humanity. We’ve seen a trailer, and now SyFy has set the premiere date in stone.  Read More »

Briefly: Terry Gilliam’s film 12 Monkeys is going to be remade as a TV series. We’ve heard that SyFy was getting interested in a show based on the 1995 film, which originally starred Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt, and Madeline Stowe. Now a pilot order has been given based on the spec script by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (Terra Nova). There’s no cast for the show at this point. The writers will co-exec produce with original film producer Charles Roven (The Dark Knight) and Richard Suckle.

We don’t know a lot about the show, but it will follow the same basic plot as the film, with a man sent back in time from a strange post-apocalyptic future. His mission: find the origin point for a plague that eventually kills most of humanity.  The pilot is currently set to shoot in November, but at this point everything depends on the cast assembly. We’ll report on the choices made by the producers as they’re made public. [Deadline; header by ~gsgill37 at DeviantArt]
