Syfy has been culling from the well of genre movies for its latest TV developments, most recently greenlighting the pilot for a '12 Monkeys' series, while today brings our first casting for 'Legion' sequel series 'Dominion.' Former 'Kings' star Christopher Egan will head up the cast, backed by 'LOST' baddie Alan Dale and '300' star Tom Wisdom, but how closely will the new story follow the 2010 film?
A few weeks ago we heard the surprising possibility that Terry Gilliam-Bruce Willis-Brad Pitt sci-fi classic '12 Monkeys' had been eyed for a potential TV series adaptation on Syfy, and it seems that reality has officially come to pass. Syfy has officially greenlit a pilot for the '12 Monkeys' TV series, said to follow the 'Battlestar Galactica' model of development, but will the series follow the same plot as the movie?
Would you pay to see something in the theater if it had already aired multiple times on television for free? Most of the time you'd say no, right? But, what if it's the pop culture joke of the summer? Of course, we're referring 'Sharknado' - the so-bad-its-good phenomenon that has taken the country by storm. Yes, you can soon see it on the big screen, you lucky dog you!
The other day we heard that Syfy had inched closer to adapting Terry GIlliam-Bruce Willis classic '12 Monkeys' into a TV series, and while that project remains in play, the cable network has given an official pilot order to another recognizable genre adaptation. 2010 supernatural actioner 'Legion' will find new life on Syfy as 'Dominion,' but what will change from silver to small screen?
Though Syfy's upcoming Ron Moore project, 'Helix,' only last week announced its leading actor to be 'The Killing' vet Billy Campbell, the series still managed to hold its own Comic-Con 2013 panel and deliver a horrifying new sizzle reel in advance of the official production! So, what can we gleam about 'Helix' from the first full teaser trailer?
Syfy has been building some major buzz with its most recent genre series, including the breakout hit 'Defiance' and buzzworthy and upcoming Ron Moore project 'Helix,' but the latest venture could be the most high-profile yet. Sources say '12 Monkeys' may soon end up as an ongoing TV series, sans Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt or Terry Gilliam, but with a major connection to the movie, regardless.
Syfy's upcoming buzzworthy Ron Moore project 'Helix' has yet to shoot a single frame of official footage, but you'd never know it from the buzz and advertising floating around Comic-Con 2013. Supporting the spread of 'Helix' is the first major casting announced today, that 'The Killing' star Billy Campbell will take the lead role in the sci-fi thriller, which has also issued a brand-new teaser!
Even with Jamie Foxx's busy year starring in everything from 'White House Down' to 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' we had been excited to see the 'Django Unchained' star return to TV by writing, directing and producing a horror anthology series for Syfy this fall. Now, scheduling conflicts have forced Foxx to postpone the project, potentially moving it to 2014 or beyond.
We're excited for former 'Battlestar Galactica' head Ron Moore to get back into the Syfy game with the buzzy new horror series 'Helix,' and today the cable network has given us yet another reason. Fresh off his work on NBC's 'Hannibal,' film and TV director David Slade will helm the pilot episode of Syfy's 'Helix,' but just how soon can we expect to see Ron Moore's latest work?
Among Syfy's numerous pilot offerings for the 2013-14 pilot season, we're most excited to get a look at 'Helix,' a dark new sci-fi thriller executive produced by 'Battlestar Galactica' redux creator and show-runner Ron Moore. The hotly-anticipated new series has just given out its first teaser trailer, but is it as dark and unsettling as we've dreamed? Get a first look at Ron Moore's new Syfy thriller 'Helix' inside!
