Syfy developing TV show based on Legion? That angel movie?!

Sony Pictures TV and the Syfy channel are coming together to bring us a most unlikely TV series: LEGION. Yes, based on the movie where Paul Bettany has to mow down angry angels with a machine gun to save the world. Lord, save us...

The series is being penned by Vaun Wilmott, whose only credit is an episode of "Sons of Anarchy", while LEGION's director Scott Stewart is executive producing and directing.

The film, which stars Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, Charles S. Dutton and Adrianne Palicki, goes like this: At a remote desert truck stop, the fate of the world will be decided. Evil's armies are amassing. Armed and united by the Archangel Michael, a group of strangers become unwitting soldiers on the frontlines of the Apocalypse. Their mission: protect a waitress and her sacred unborn child from the relentless, bloody siege of the demonic legion.

How that will translate in to a series? There are no details available; perhaps Michael has to hunt down a different pissed-off angel every episode. Or maybe he and God get into wacky misadventures as they travel across the U.S. in search of their big break...

Adrianne Palicki
