Syfy Has Ordered a 12 Monkeys Pilot.

Quote
The great thing about time travel, it appears, is that you’ll always get another chance to try and make everything turn out well in the end. Deadline is reporting that Syfy has given a pilot order for a series based on 12 Monkeys, Terry Gilliam’s time-travel movie starring Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt.

That’s the good news — well, arguably good news, depending on how you feel about Syfy’s slate of original dramas. Unfortunately, as all fans of 12 Monkeys already know, things never turn out the way you want them to when you go back in time. And that’s not the show’s only time-jumping drawback: It’s being penned by two writers from Fox’s failed attempt at its own time-travel television series, Terra Nova.

I really liked the original, I cant see any reason for this series to even exist.  I also cant see these two guys capturing the essence of Gilliams brilliance so I fully expect it to be a major failure.  I do hope Im wrong though Im pretty confident I wont be.

But this is from the same network that gave us the classic Sharknado.    What could go wrong?

Maybe they will add all kinds of awesome, like a monakeynado or monkeynami. But most likely it will probably turn out as awesome as having explosive monkey diarrhea.

It was an ok movie.  Would I be crazy if I wanted a Monkees remake first?
