The last update we had on the small screen adaptation of Steven Spielberg’s MINORITY REPORT was that FOX had ordered the pilot episode, a small but meaningful step for the series. The show has taken another step forward and the network has announced a director for that pilot episode. Established TV director Mark Mylod will take on the pilot episode, his resume includes episodes of Game of Thrones, Shameless (US and UK), Once Upon a Time and The Affair.

The script comes from Max Borenstein (GODZILLA) and will serve as a sequel to the 2002 film. It will be set 10 years later with the “Pre-crime” unit dismantled. One of the three mutated precognitive people who were at the core of that unit “struggles to lead a “normal” human life, but remains haunted by visions of the future, when he meets a detective haunted by her past who just may help him find a purpose to his gift.”

MINORITY REPORT is easily one of my favorite sci-fi movies, Tom Cruise movies, and Spielberg movies. It's basically a perfect movie that never lets up. I’m intrigued by the series and hope they can bring some clever ideas in order to keep make it feel like an extension of the movie. Look no further than FX’s Fargo TV series to understand how that can be done.

I enjoyed it up to a point...where Cruise is put in to cryogenic sleep - would have made for a very depressing ending...but I guess the Hollywood need to have it end on a happy note got the better of everyone. I've also always been bothered about the decision to close the unit down just because one case was proven to have been faked. I mean...all those rapists and serial killers let back out because of this one case. Surely there was a way to deal with the apparent glitch in the

I've also always been bothered about the decision to close the unit down just because one case was proven to have been faked. I mean...all those rapists and serial killers let back out because of this one case. Surely there was a way to deal with the apparent glitch in the system.

As for the show, I've just got too many shows on my plate to deal with this :o)

Minority Report was such an awesome movie, easily in the top 10 favorite sci-fi movies of mine. This tv show sounds like the same tired trend of pairing a detective with a person with abilities/visions to prevent or fight crime. I doubt I'll be checking this show out.
