In terms of plot, we don’t really have much of an idea as to what we should expect, but now that the cast has been assembled and shooting has begun, it shouldn’t be too long until we find out more.
The untitled Mission: Impossible 5 also stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin and Ving Rhames, and will nicely finish off a busy 2015 when it’s released on December 25th (just one week after Star Wars Episode VII, »

Future criminals beware – the precogs are back. 12 years after the Tom Cruise vehicle became a critical and commercial success, Steven Spielberg is moving ahead with a TV adaptation of his film Minority Report, to be scribed by Godzilla screenwriter Max Borenstein.
Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment is behind the project, which will likely focus on the elite PreCrime unit seen in the film. It’s unclear how closely the TV adaptation will hew to the original film, which was based on a story by Philip K. Dick, but in Minority Report, the controversial police unit used three “precogs,” mutated humans with predictive abilities who could identify murderers before they ever carried out their crimes.
It’s a similar set-up to CBS’ Person of Interest, in which characters utilize advanced technology in order to thwart crimes before they happen, but that series’ success may indicate to Spielberg that there’s both still »

One of the words most often used to describe this summer's terrific "Godzilla" reboot was "Spielbergian" and it looks like the bearded filmmaker was also a big fan. He's bringing aboard Max Borenstein, who was credited with the "Godzilla" screenplay (even though, if we're being totally candid, a small squadron of writers contributed to the screenplay, including Frank Darabont and Rian Johnson), to adapt his 2002 feature film "Minority Report" for the small screen.
The Wrap is reporting that Steven Spielberg and Borenstein will translate the sci-fi adventure, which starred Tom Cruise as a cop in the "pre-crime" division of a futuristic Los Angeles, who uses psychics to help stop violent acts before they occur, for Spielberg's Amblin Television. According to the report Spielberg is targeting a "name" actor to anchor the series, like he did for his summer CBS series "Extant" (he nabbed Halle Berry).

Tom Cruise starred in the original film as the head of PreCrime, a police unit that uses three psychics to locate and arrest murderers before the crime is committed.
However, Cruise's character is forced to go on the run when he is accused of future murder himself.
The new weekly series is expected to focus on the PreCrime unit, with Spielberg set to choose a top actor for the lead role.
CBS show Person of Interest uses a similar format, in which a computer programmer and ex-cia hitman use a machine to prevent crimes before they happen.
"Mission: Impossible 5" just started filming and now we have the first photos of Tom Cruise on the set of the new installment. Check out the photos below, which are from the Vienna State Opera House in Austria. In addition to Cruise, the film also stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames. New to the franchise are Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), who will play the female lead, and Alec Baldwin, who will play the head of the CIA. "Mission: Impossible 5" is directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) and is set to hit theaters on December 25th, 2015. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
The Wrap is reporting that Steven Spielberg is working on a "Minority Report" TV series, which is based on his movie and the Philip K Dick's short story. "Godzilla" writer Max Borenstein is writing the script. The 2002 movie starred Tom Cruise as Chief John Anderton, a law enforcement official working for a special police unit in Washington DC that uses a small group of individuals with precognitive abilities to stop crimes before they ever happen. It's not clear if the TV series will be connected to the movie. All we know is that the producers are looking to cast a known actor and for the show to follow the PreCrime unit. »
Barely a week goes by at Den Of Geek Towers where we aren’t reporting on another new film adaptation coming to the small screen. It has also become customary to link to this article on Fargo in such circumstances, to remind us all how well such projects can work.
They’ve got MTV’s Scream, HBO’s Westworld, NBC’s The Devil’s Advocate and the next series of Fargo to compete with in the race to find the next big cinema-to-telly ratings hit.
The Wrap are reporting this morning that the world of Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report is coming to television. Spielberg is said to be developing the project through his Amblin Entertainment production house, and Max Borenstein, who wrote the recent Godzilla movie, is also on board.
Minority Report, based on the Phillip K. Dick novel ‘The Minority Report,’ was released as a Tom Cruise vehicle in 2002, and revolved around an elite team of law enforcement officers that could predict crime before it happened. Colin Farrell also appeared in the movie.
No word as to who will star in the lead in the series, but producers are said to be hunting down a name actor to topline. More news as we get it.

Science fiction classics are making a comeback. A sequel to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner is currently in the works at Alcon Entertainment, and cult favorites Battlestar Galactica and Babylon 5 are both being adapted for the big screen.
Now a more recent science fiction property is making a comeback – as a TV show.
Now, the deal hasn’t closed quite yet, but should the series go forward at Amblin Television, Spielberg is expected to choose an actor as the lead, just as he did with Halle Berry on CBS’ newest sci-fi drama Extant.

"Minority Report" may be coming to the small-screen. Steven Spielberg's blockbuster sci-fi film starring Tom Cruise is being developed as a TV series by the director's Amblin Television, according to Deadline, with "Godzilla" screenwriter Max Borenstein attached to pen the script. The project, which is still in the "very early stages," will take off from the film's near-future vision of a world in which a special police unit - aided by telepaths known as "precogs" - is able to arrest murderers before they commit their crimes. The premise is based on the short story of the same name by Philip K. Dick. No network is yet attached to the project. Released in the summer of 2002, "Minority Report" was met with critical acclaim and went on to gross over $350 million worldwide. It also starred Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton and Max von Sydow. Do you think a "Minority Report" TV series is a good idea? »

Minority Report starred Tom Cruise as Detective John Anderton, who runs the "Pre-Crime" unit in Washington D.C. that uses three psychics known as "precogs" to accurately predict crimes before they will happen, with arrests being made before the crime actually happens. The plot thickens when John is forced to go on the run after the precogs reveal he is about to commit murder.
The weekly series is said to focus on the elite Pre-Crime unit, with Steven Spielberg said to be eyeing a major star for the lead role, similar to how the producer lured Oscar winner Halle Berry to star in his CBS sci-fi series Extant.
20th Century Fox distributed Minority Report in 2002, which earned $358 million worldwide, but it's unclear whether or not the studio or the Fox »

Minority Report is one of my favorite Steven Spielberg movies, and I'm kind of exited to tell you that the filmmaker will be bringing his 2002 sci-fi story to the small screen.

You can now add Minority Report to the list of films that have recently jumped from the movies to television as The Wrap reports Steven Spielberg is developing a TV series based on his 2002 feature with Max Borenstein (Godzilla) writing the script. The feature, which starred Tom Cruise was based on the short story by Philip K. Dick. Set in a 2054 Washington D.C., the story centered on a judicial system in which killers are arrested and convicted before they commit murder using a psychic technology. Cruise played the head of this Precrime unit and was eventually accused of the future murder of a man he hasn't even met. I can only assume the show would focus on a Precrime unit in the near future as they would solve a series of cases each week. I'm not sure just how long you could get that to last, however, considering even »

Steven Spielberg is reportedly developing a TV series based on his 2002 sci-fi film adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story "Minority Report". "Godzilla" scribe Max Borenstein will write the project which will be produced by Amblin Television.
Tom Cruise starred in the original as an officer of the PreCrime division, a special police unit that uses three psychics tied into their computers to identify and arrest criminal offenders before they commit their acts. His character is forced to go on the run when he's accused of a future murder himself.
It's unknown if the series will eschew the frame-up and conspiracy elements within the film in favor of a more TV-friendly futuristic police procedural focusing on the PreCrime unit - something akin to "Person of Interest" with more sci-fi elements.

Steven Spielberg is no stranger to the television landscape, but for one of his upcoming small screen projects it appears that he’s keen on mining one of his own properties. Spielberg is developing a Minority Report TV series based on his Tom Cruise-fronted 2002 sci-fi thriller of the same name, per The Wrap. As you well know, Minority Report was based on a Philip K. Dick short story that revolved around the PreCrime unit, which specialized in preventing crimes before they happened using a trio of “precogs” that could see the future. Sounds like a pretty solid premise for a weekly TV series, no? More after the jump. The Wrap reports that Spielberg is developing the Minority Report TV series via his Amblin Television studio, with Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein set to pen the screenplay. In addition to Godzilla, Borenstein previously wrote Legendary’s long-delayed Seventh Son and is »

For those of you who may not remember, the popular and well-received sci-fi movie (which was based on one of Philip K. Dick’s stories) focused on the head of a special “PreCrime” police unit which used three “precogs” in order to identify and arrest murderers before they even committed the crime.
This twist was that the lead would have to go on the run (he was after all played by Tom Cruise) when the psychics seemingly discovered that he was one of the future murderers he takes down.
The small screen version will presumably focus on the ongoing crimes investigated by Minority Report’s Precrime Unit – how it connects to the movie isn’t clear at »
