12 Monkeys to reboot as series over at Syfy?

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the Terry Gilliam film 12 Monkeys is being adapted into a series for Syfy, and is nearing a series order. Chuck Roven and Richard Suckle, who produced the movie, are involved.

The movie dealt with a post-apocalyptic Earth, devastated by a virus believed to have been released by a terrorist organization called the Army of the 12 Monkeys. A convicted criminal by the name of James Cole (Bruce Willis) can earn a pardon if he agrees to go back in time (using some problematic technology) to try and discover the origin of the virus and bring back a pure sample, so that they might be able to craft a cure back in the future. The film also starred Brad Pitt and Madeline Stow.

It is expected that there will be a 90-minute backdoor pilot, which if it does sufficiently well will kick in to a series order.
