Deadline recently reported that SyFy has picked up a new 12 Monkeys series for 12 episodes, starting in January 2015. This series is based on the 1995 Terry Gilliam film starring Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt.
The story for the show "follows the journey of a time traveler (Aaron Stanford) from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race."
The series also stars Amanda Schull, Noah Bean, and Kirk Acevedo.
I am such a huge fan of the movie, and I completely recommend watching it if you haven't already. Pitt was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the film. He would have won that year had he not been up against Kevin Spacey as Verbal Kint.
I am excited to see that it is coming to TV. The movie left me feeling that there was so much more they could have done.
Until Next Time…
