Minority Report TV show in the works with Steven Spielberg

4 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Steven Spielberg is developing a new TV version of his 2002 sci-fi Minority Report.

Godzilla's Max Borenstein will write the new adaptation of the Philip K Dick story, according to TheWrap.

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.

Spielberg is currently developing a Cold War thriller starring Tom Hanks, before working on a new adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Bfg. »

Minority Report TV series is being developed

7 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Godzilla scribe Mac Borenstein is writing TV version of Minority Report for Amblin Television...

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.

The latest to be jumping on the bandwagon is Amblin Television, Steven Spielberg’s production company, who are now redeveloping Tom Cruise vehicle Minority Report for television.

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.

Working on the project will be Max Borenstein, best known for scripting Gareth EdwardsGodzilla - an interesting choice, with good form in mixing homage with new ideas. »

Steven Spielberg's 'Minority Report' is being developed as a TV series

12 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"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? »

Steven Spielberg Planning 'Minority Report' TV Show

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Steven Spielberg has hired Godzilla writer Max Borenstein to create a TV series based on his 2002 sci-fi blockbuster Minority Report.

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 »

Steven Spielberg to Develop Minority Report as TV Series

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. The news comes from The Wrap, who also reports that the series will be written by Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein and produced by Amblin Television.

The story is based on a futuristic story written by Philip K.

Cruise's character is forced to go on the run when he's accused of a future murder.

Steven Spielberg is Developing 'Minority Report' as a TV Series

16 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

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 »

Spielberg Plans A "Minority Report" Series

16 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

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.

Spielberg is expected to lock down a name actor for the lead (ala. Halle Berry in "Extant") in the »

Steven Spielberg Developing Minority Report TV Series with Godzilla Writer

18 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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 »

Steven Spielberg Turns to Godzilla Writer for Minority Report TV Series

18 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Steven Spielberg is developing a TV series based on his 2002 movie Minority Report, and it has been revealed today that he has turned to Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein to work on the show.

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 »

‘Miss Meadows’ Trailer: Can Katie Holmes Make a Comeback With a Gun In Her Hand?

19 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Earlier this week, we presented a list of actors and actresses who have failed miserably in their attempts at a comeback. For his #1, writer Ashe Cantrell named Katie Holmes, whose latest movie is the critical and box office disappointment The Giver. Maybe we spoke too soon, though; or, maybe we should recognize that all the names on that list still have the potential to eventually find their footing again. The former Mrs. Tom Cruise is only in her late ’30s, and nowadays that doesn’t have to mean anything. We can be reminded of that when Holmes co-stars alongside Helen Mirren in next year’s Woman in Gold. Plus, there’s always the chance that a career-resurrector like Quentin Tarantino will find a special role just for her. He could turn her image upside down by turning her into a gun-toting vigilante. Oh, wait, someone else has already beat Qt to the punch there. Filmmaker »

Steven Spielberg Plans Minority Report TV Series

19 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Please hold your “we really should have seen this coming” jokes until the end, because even pre-cogs are tired of hearing it. Still, it’s true that Steven Spielberg has decided that the time is right for a TV series based on 2002’s Minority Report, and is in the process of hiring Godzilla writer Max Borenstein to begin working on a script.According to The Wrap, the series is still at a very early stage and there are no firm details as to the driving plot yet. But given the film, you have to figure it’ll follow the investigations of the PreCrime police unit that channels psychic predictions through a complicated computer system to track murderers down before they can even commit the crime. In the film, Tom Cruise’s Chief John Anderton ends up on the run when he becomes the focus of such an investigation.There’s »
