Fox orders a Minority Report television pilot

New, 17 comments

Good news for those who desperately wanted Minority Report to become a TV series. Deadline reports that Fox has greenlit a pilot for the program, which could ultimately lead to a full series order. Fox bought the project, which picks up 10 years after the events of the 2002 film, back in September. It's being written and produced by Max Borenstein, who wrote last year's blockbuster Godzilla, and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television, which has done shows like Showtime's The Borgias and TNT's Falling Skies.

There's no news yet on who the potential cast will be. The 2002 film starred Tom Cruise as a rogue member of a special "precrime" police unit in charge of preventing murders by looking into the future. The film, which was based on a Philip K. Dick novel, turned out to be surprisingly accurate at predicting our own future, from drones and gesture-based computing, to personalized advertising.
