MINORITY REPORT TV Series in Development with Steven Spielberg

‘Godzilla’ screenwriter to pen the project…

Steven Spielberg has set in motion plans for a TV series follow-up to his 2002 neo-noir sci-fi thriller ‘Minority Report.’

Based on Philip K. Dick’s short story of the same name, the film starred Tom Cruise as Captain John Anderton, head of “Precrime,” a police force that uses visions of the future generated by three mutated humans with precognitive abilities to stop murders before they happen. The film co-starred Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, and Max von Sydow.

According to THR’s sources, the series will take place 10 years after the events of the film and feature a female lead. 

‘Godzilla’ scribe Max Borenstein is on board to pen the script which sees “one of the three Precogs struggles to lead a ‘normal’ human life, but remains haunted by visions of the future. He meets a detective haunted by her past who just may help him find a purpose to his gift.”

Spielberg is said to be targeting a name actor for the lead, like how he cast Halle Berry for his sci-fi series ‘Extant.’ The series is a co-production between Amblin Television, Paramount Television and 20th Century Fox Television.
