The series orders and cancellations from Upfronts 2015 keep rolling in, and it didn’t take a Pre-Cog to see this one coming. FOX has given the official greenlight to its Minority Report sequel series, picking up a decade after the events of the original Steven Spielberg sci-fi film with Tom Cruise.
FOX’s Minority Report sequel series has made some notable casting choices to date, returning Daniel London to his original role from the 2002 Spielberg film, but now the future-set pilot has its first original lead. Not only has Anchorman 2 star Meagan Good landed the leading role, so too has one of the film’s Pre-Cogs been recast to deliver the new Minority Report.
As 'Anchorman 2' has begun shooting, casting is now filling in quite nicely, and on top of the core five of Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate, and new additions Kristen Wiig and James Marsden, now Meagan Good and Dylan Baker have officially joined the cast.
