Terry Gilliam returns with his follow-up to 2009's 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' with the equally divisive 'The Zero Theorem.' Christoph Waltz plays Qohen Leth, a computer and math whiz who is tasked by his enigmatic boss (Matt Damon, doing his best Karl Lagerfeld impression) to solve the impossible zero theorem -- a nihilistic mathematical equation that would effectively prove that the world means nothing. Along the way, Qohen finds plenty of meaning, though Gilliam practically bludgeons his audience to get there.
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?
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.
