No sooner has the movie version of UK TV show Primeval been announced than rumors start appearing that suggest that a small-screen American version of the series may be happening as well...

Digital Spy reports that Impossible Pictures, Primeval's production company, have started planning for a spin-off from the British television series that will "take the show's mythology beyond the UK," potentially all the way to the US.

So far, no US networks have been namedropped by anyone spreading the story, but if the rumors turn out to be true, don't be too surprised to see the show co-produced by Warner Bros. (responsible for the upcoming movie), and showing up on SyFy, which currently re-runs the British series after its first US broadcast on BBC America.
