What is up with reboots? We can understand wanting to make the most out of an intellectual property, but what happened to original ideas? Sorry, getting a bit ahead of myself. Seems some recent news has leaked that Steven Spielberg will be rebooting his Minority Report movie into a TV show. As stated on Pajiba:
"Steven Spielberg is developing a TV series based on his 2002 hit sci-fi movie “Minority Report” that will be written by “Godzilla” scribe Max Borenstein and produced by Amblin Television, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap."
For those who may have missed the Tom Cruise flick, Minority Report is about a "pre-crime" unit who can assess the likelihood of someone committing a crime and can stop it. There is fine print, though, as there is with all good science fiction. This procedure in which they find future crimes seems to hint that our protagonist is going to commit a future crime, and he ends up having to go on the run and figure the whole mess out before he, himself, is taken out.
Keep in mind, that is just the movie (and book) version. Details on how the show will play out are still very vague except for the fact that we know Spielberg is on-board in some manner. Though TV needs more original ideas and concepts, we will be curious to see how this show plays out. More details as they emerge.
