FOX Ordered the TV sequel to Tom Cruise’s “Minority Report” according to a recent article by Entertainment Weekly. The Wrap broke the news about the potential small screen adaptation of Steven Spielberg’s 2002 sci-fi movie two weeks ago.
“The drama would pick up 10 years after the events of the film, in which a division called Precrime, headed up by Tom Cruise’s Chief John Anderton, used Precogs to arrest people before they actually committed a crime. Precrime was shut down, and the three Precogs tried to go on to lead a normal life—which is where the sequel comes in. Haunted by visions of the future, one of the Precogs teams with a detective who is haunted by her past.”
We will have to wait and see if Spielberg can capture the success of the critically acclaimed movie and adapt it straight to small screen. It’s a gamble to adapt critically acclaimed movies with a distinct fingerprint in its genre, but let’s trust Spielberg to bring that all too familiar flair and creative ideas to pushed the boundaries.
“Godzilla” scribe Max Borenstein is hired to pen the script, and he executive produces the project alongside Amblin Television’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. No casting announcement has been made just yet, but Spielberg is expected to put a top-notch actor in the lead role as unit’s leader.
