One of the most intriguing upcoming new shows has to be Fox's small screen adaptation of Minority Report, so we were very interested to see what the cast and crew had to say about it at Comic-Con in San Diego earlier this month.

1. The series is all about humanising precogs.

The new Fox series Minority Report had its panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. The show takes place 10 years after the end of Pre-crime in D.C. The show is a direct sequel to the 2002 film by Steven Spielberg, and follows Dash (Stark Sands), a young precog, and younger brother to Agatha (Laura Regan), played by Samantha Morton in the film. The precogs have been sent into a sort of witness protection program and have been sheltered from the world. Dash is trying to lead a normal life while trying to deal with his visions of the future. He meets a detective named Lara Vega (Meagan Good), who was in Pre-crime training, and found it canceled as soon as she was ready to go. They form an alliance to help stop crime.

After Fox unveiled the first 20 minutes of the Steven Spielberg-executive produced show Minority Report to great applause today at Comic-Con, executive producer Kevin Falls quickly teased that Tom Cruise’s appearance is “something that may or may not happen.” However, per one insider on the show who was clarifying Falls’ statement to Deadline after the panel, that guest star might be just wishful thinking. Based on Spielberg’s 2002 feature adaptation of the Philip K. Dick… »
Sands was originally cast in the dual roles of identical twins Dash and Arthur, both of whom receive precognitive visions that enable them to see crimes before they’re committed.
Sands will retain the lead role of Dash, who selflessly and heroically tries to stop the future murders he sees in his visions, while Zano will take over the role of Arthur, meaning that the twins will be portrayed as fraternal instead of identical.
Arthur is described as having a hard shell, borne of years of difficult experience in the outside world that Dash avoided. He’s confident and self-assured, even Machiavellian in his interaction with the world that once exploited him, using his gift to consolidate personal wealth and power in the building of an empire. Stronger together as a complete unit, »
