David Cronenberg’s science-fiction horror classic Scanners may be headed to the small screen, reports Deadline. The Weinstein Co.’s Dimension Films is developing a drama series adaptation of the movies about a group of people with telepathic and telekinetic abilities, with The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors, High Tension and Piranha 3D writer-director Alexandre Aja signed to executive produce the series and potentially direct the pilot.
Dimension was not involved in the original 1981 Scanners film or its sequels, but acquired the rights to the franchise in a development deal several years ago. The original plan was to mount a theatrical remake, with David Goyer tapped to write two drafts, and Rene Malo, Clark Peterson and Pierre David signed as producers.
