Because you didn't ask for it- a Legion TV show

02.10.2012

Scott Stewart's LEGION was a fairly lousy film. A silly tale of an army of angels who come to earth to kill a massively pregnant woman and fail miserably (perhaps because the angels posess humans and become stupid zombie-like creatures that can't even handle guns?), it starred Paul Bettany as the archangel Michael, the only angel who decided to help the mortals.

The film made back its money but didn't exactly light the world on fire, so perhaps it's fitting that the show will be getting a new home on SyFy. 

That's right, Stewart will direct and executive produce a tv adaptation of LEGION, which will be written by Vaun Wilmott ("Sons of Anarchy"). Since Adrianne Palicki's character was really trying to pull a Sarah Conner with the bandana and voiceover, perhaps we'll see her becoming more of an action hero as she tries to keep her son safe.

No word on casting for the show just yet.

Yeah, holy crap was the end a Sarah Connor rip off. I mean they didn't try to mask it at all, not to mention the entire approach was an insult to the grand scale of what a battle between heaven and anything might begin to approach- just look at the shelved Paradise Lost adaptation or the South Park multi-parter for proof of this.

as long as Adrianne Palicki doesn't embrass herself by showing up to this, I'll give this one season ( since it's Syfy...maybe 2)

I actually liked the movie, even if it became a rip-off of Terminator by the end (at least it stole from a great flick)... but not so much to want a sequel and I don't see how a tv series makes sense as well. And who would we be following? Michael or Palicki's character? Totally unnecessary

Chill the fuck out. Can a terrible movie become a good TV show? I dunno, ask Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Legion weekly?

I saw the movie, quickly dismissed it. My life hasnt really wanted those two hours back so it really WASNT ALL THAT BAD... will I watch each week? Probably not... but i would watch the pilot and give it a chance.

Um...No

The movie Gabriel starring the late Andy Whitfield would have made a potentially better Tv series I think. R.I.P AW
