Syfy is developing a series version of the 2010 supernatural thriller Legion, which starred Paul Bettany.
Deadline reports that the feature’s director/co-writer Scott Stewart is set to direct and executive produce the TV adaptation, which will be written by Vaun Wilmott (“Sons Of Anarchy”).
Sony Pictures TV, the TV sibling of Sony’s Screen Gems division that distributed the film, is producing the series project.
The movie, produced by Bold Films, “chronicled human race’s battle for survival against God’s legion of angels sent by him to bring on the Apocalypse. The people get an unlikely ally in Archangel Michael (Bettany) who disobeys God’s order and decides to help them.”
Budgeted at $26 million, the movie grossed $68 million worldwide.
