Fox is looking to change things up a bit on their television adaptation of ‘Minority Report’ by adding Nick Zano in the role of another pre-cog twin.
Zano has joined the cast as a series regular, with the ‘Happy Endings’ and ‘One Big Happy’ alum set to play Arthur, Dash’s (Stark Sands) twin brother. Which is a new twist on the film by having the twin pre-cogs be fraternal instead of identical.
The series picks up the story ten years after Pre-crime in D.C., Minority Report follows Dash, who can see crimes before they happen. As he struggles to lead a “normal” human life, he remains haunted by visions of the future until he meets a detective (Meagan Good), who just may help him find a purpose to his gift.
Arthur has a hard shell, borne of years of difficult experience in the outside world that Dash avoided. Arthur is confident and self-assured, even Machiavellian in his interaction with the world that once exploited him. Where Dash uses his pre-cog visions as a means to help save lives. His brother Arthur uses his gifts to consolidate his own wealth and power.
Stronger together as a complete unit, they help one another from time to time, but in the long term both are bad for each other’s business.
‘Minority Report’ will debut Monday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
