Producers John Wells and Arnold Kopelson are bringing the 1997 feature The Devil’s Advocate to television as a potential series, reports Deadline.
The legal drama with a supernatural twist, from Warner Bros. TV, has landed at NBC with what they hear is already getting a pilot commitment!
Written by Matt Venne (“Bag of Bones,” The Exorcism Of Molly Harley), “the series centers on a public defender who joins a law firm that is run by the Devil himself.”
In the 1997 movie, produced by Oscar winner Kopelson for Warner Bros., the young lawyer was played by Keanu Reeves, with Al Pacino playing his boss. The film, based on Andrew Neiderman’s novel of the same name, was directed by Taylor Hackford, with Charlize Theron co-starring. It grossed $153 million dollars on a $57 million budget.
