Noah Bean, pictured above, is reuniting with his “Nikita” co-star Aaron Stanford, pictured below, in “12 Monkeys,” Syfy‘s drama pilot based on the 1995 Terry Gilliam movie, Deadline reports.
Also joining the pilot, from Universal Cable Prods. and Atlas Entertainment, is Emmy winner Željko Ivanek (“Damages”), who will guest star.
“’12 Monkeys’ follows the journey of Cole (Stanford), a desperate and haunted time traveler from the post-apocalyptic near future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that eventually will decimate the human race.“
Bean plays Aaron Marker, a political strategist whose relationship with Cassandra Railly (female lead Amanda Schull) is torn apart by Cole’s appearance. Aaron tries to protect Cassandra but is pulled in to the conspiracy to end the world. Ivanek will play Leland Frost, a brilliant venture capitalist and philanthropist behind cutting-edge biological research. His charming and debonair exterior hides a ruthless drive that may bring mankind to extinction.
