Syfy Green Lights 12 Monkeys TV Series

by at . Comments

First, Rambo. Now, 12 Monkeys.

Syfy has given the green light to a pilot based on the 1995 film 12 Monkeys, which earned Brad Pitt an Academy Award nomination and which will focus on the journey of a man from the future who goes back in time to prevent a deadly virus from eradicating mankind.

Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (Terra Nova) penned the 60-minute premiere, with filming scheduled to begin in November.

No actors have been cast in the roles made famous in the original by Pitt or Bruce Willis, but our Comments section is open, TV Fanatics. Let's hear your suggestions!
