Michael J. Basset tackles tv series "Da Vinci's Demons" for Starz

Did you guys know Starz was working on a new genre series called "Da Vinci's Demons?" Nah, me either! That's why I'm here today to tell you all about it!

You see Michael J. Bassett, who directed the upcoming SILENT HILL: REVELATION, revealed via a 'tweet' on his Twitter account that he'll be tackling the series for Starz. Check out the 'tweet' for yourself:

“As one adventure finishes another begins; home for just two days and now packing my bags again to go hunting some demons with DaVinci”

I can dig it. But what is this thing about exactly? Check it:

In a world where thought and faith are controlled, one man fights to set knowledge free. Leonardo Da Vinci is tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He finds himself in a conflict between truth and lies, religion and reason, past and future. His aspirations are used against him by the opposing forces of the time – luring him into a game of seduction where those who despise his intellect need him most. His quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing. Da Vinci throws himself into his genius and emerges as an unstoppable force that lifts an entire era out of darkness and propels it into light. His story becomes a mirror into our own world, calling us all to join his fight to free the future.

Genre regular David Goyer actually penned this shite so if you're a fan of his you can probably start getting excited. While this is really all the info we have right now regarding "Da Vinci's Demons" we do have a promo trailer for the series from Starz. Natch! Go ahead and check that shite out below!

So what do you think? "Da Vinci's Demons" sounding solid? Spit some bullets below and let us know what you think as we wait for more updates from this one to roll our way.

Extra Tidbit: Michael J. Basset also directed DEATHWATCH and WILDERNESS, the latter of which stars Lenora Crichlow (above).
