Fans of the 2010 supernatural thriller, Legion (Are there any? I don’t think so), have some more of the story to look forward to. Syfy has just announced its plans to develop the thriller, which starred Paul Bettany and Dennis Quaid, into a series for their network.
Deadline reports that the series will be written by Sons of Anarchy scribe, Vaun Wilmott, and it will be adapted by the film’s original director, Scott Stewart. Sony Pictures TV is producing the new project.
The film follows archangel, Michael (Bettany) who falls to Earth and makes his way to a small diner which is occupied by a small group of people, one of whom is pregnant with a child that will save humanity. Michael stands beside the humans and offers his help against the legion of angels sent to Earth to begin the apocalypse.
No idea why the network chose this particular film to be made into a series but maybe it will be good if the guy behind SOA will be writing the script.
