The Devil's Advocate is being adapted as a television series at NBC

I don't know about you, but I loved THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE. Despite Keanu Reeves awful accent, Taylor Hackford's horror/legal thriller gave us one of the last great performances from Al Pacino who chews each scene as the perfect big screen Satan. Plus, we got a sexy Charlize Theron and a buck naked Connie Nielsen in one of the most awkward sex scenes in movie history.

Well, it looks like we may get a new take on THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE as ER creator John Wells has a pilot commitment from NBC. There is no word on whether the series will be a direct adaptation of the original novel or the 1997 feature, but I would expect the show to follow the same basic plot of a young hotshot lawyer who comes to New York City and slowly learns that the boss at his law firm is the Devil himself and possibly his father.

NBC has been diving deep into genre series in recent years with shows like DRACULA, HANNIBAL, GRIMM, and this fall's CONSTANTINE. Wells also has a long history with the network so this could be the latest addition to your DVR if the pilot goes to series. In the meantime, this may be the perfect time to revisit your DVD of THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE if you haven't seen it in a while.
