While we are seeing a lot of movies being rebooted and remade on the big screen, there are also a lot of former movie projects, which are now being adapted and developed for the small screen for a new television series. Some of the upcoming television series based on movies include the likes of Constantine, Daredevil, and 12 Monkeys.
While Constantine and Daredevil will no doubt focus more on the comic book source material, rather than the movies, it will be interesting to see what direction the 12 Monkeys television series will take. We get to see a little of this in the recent 12 Monkeys trailer which was released and it looks like they are going in the direction of a time travel thriller show.
The 12 Monkeys television series is officially described as "Follows the journey of a time traveler 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 12 Monkeys television series will offer us quite an impressive cast, including the likes of Aaron Stanford, Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Jodi Lyn Brockton, Shannon Lucio, Zeljko Ivanek, and Noah Bean, among others. The pilot episode of 12 Monkeys has been directed by Jeffrey Reiner, while the project has been adapted for the small screen by Travis Fickett and Terry Matalas.
12 Monkeys will premiere on Syfy in January 2015 but, for now, check out the 12 Monkeys trailer below, and let us know what you think about the upcoming television series.
