With procedural drama dominating TV ratings, Steven Spielberg plans on capitalizing on the trend… but with a twist.
The Oscar-winning director is in the process of developing a TV series adaptation of his 2002 hit film Minority Report.
Based on the short story by Philip K. Dick, Minority Report took place in 2054 and focused on a program called “PreCrime,” in which police used three psychics to identify and apprehend murderers before a crime is committed. In the film, the main character is the head of the program becomes a fugitive when he is accused of a murder himself. The film starred Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell, grossed $358 million worldwide.
Spielberg has hired Godzilla writer Max Borenstein to write the project, and Spielberg’s Amblin TV would produce.
