Release the robot spiders! Steven Speilberg is developing a Minority Report pilot over at Amblin television. A PreCrime police procedural? Sure, we can see it. But will it start off by falsely accusing Chief John Anderton as a crime, or not?
The Wrap is reporting that the Philip K. Dick-inspired movie is slowly being turned over for a series. Allegedly, the series will follow the PreCrime unit and the various crimes they solve before they happen (thanks to their tub full of future-seeing kids). The series has hired Godzilla writer Max Borenstein to pen the pilot and hopes to land a big name lead to spearhead the series.
There's kind of a glut of near-future and supernatural procedurals right now, so Minority Report will have to work a bit harder to stand out. Then again it already has name recognition, which is good. We shall see.
