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.
BBC America has joined BBC Cymru Wales as co-producer of the upcoming BBC One series Atlantis, which is a Merlin-like re-imagining of the Greek myths and legends, created by the Merlin duo of Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps and Misfits creator Howard Overman.
This will allow BBC America to show Atlantis this fall as part of its Supernatural Saturday block. The 13 episode series is currently in production.
Here are two of the three trailers for Once upon A Time, released at Comic-Con over the weekend (the third was just a shorter edit):
