Fox has secured the rights to the long-rumored Minority Report TV show, with the new series set to feature a female lead.
According to THR, the studio has already tapped Godzilla writer Max Borenstein to write the script, while Steven Spielberg has also been involved in the development of the project so far, likely staying on as an executive producer.
The series will pick up with one of the three Pre-Cogs (mutated humans capable of seeing into the future), and will follow his attempts at a normal life after the Pre-Crime initiative has been shut down.
“The Minority Report follow-up takes place 10 years after the end of Precrime in D.C., when 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,” from the article
However, his visions are still as vivid and frequent as ever, and the heroine of the piece is only too happy to channel them in what she believes is the right direction.
According to the report, Spielberg is keen to recruit a big-name actor for the lead role, so expect the rumor mill to grind into gear over the coming weeks.
