Steven Spielberg is looking to develop a science fiction series to follow up on his 2002 movie ‘Minority Report,’ which starred Tom Cruise and an up and coming Colin Farrell.
Based on a story by Philip K. Dick the film was a futuristic police procedural set in 2054. The story centred on a program called “PreCrime,” in which police used three psychics to identify and apprehend murderers before a crime is committed. In the film, the main character is the head of the program and must go on the run when he is accused of a murder himself. The movie, which was much talked about at the time grossed $358 million worldwide.
According to TV Guide Spielberg has hired ‘ Godzilla’ scribe Max Borenstein to write the project while Spielberg’s Amblin TV would produce.
In recent years Spielberg has taken on more television projects through his production company, including Falling Skies, Extant and the upcoming Red Band Society. Various reports indicate that the acclaimed director is to be highly involved in developing the series.
