Fox gives Minority Report the nod – precog goes primetime on tellybox
Steven Spielberg chooses exec producer credit
Hollywood director Steven Spielberg has thrown his weight behind a hotly-anticipated Minority Report TV series.
According to Deadline, Spielberg – whose 2002 Minority Report movie starred Tom Cruise – was impressed enough to attach his name to the project after watching a pilot of the show.
Fox confirmed on Friday that it had ordered the drama for the small screen.
It will be produced by Spielberg's company Amblin TV.
The tellybox adaptation of the futuristic film will be set 10 years after Pre-crime has ended.
Minority Report will apparently follow a freed precog, who attempts to lead an ordinary life.
Yeah, good luck with that.
