Syfy will start production on a new scripted drama series based on the 1995 film 12 Monkeys, the network said Friday.
The 12-episode 12 Monkeys series, which follows the journey of a time traveler from the future who goes back in time in an effort to eradicate the source of a deadly plague, will be produced by Atlas Entertainment, which produced the original 12 Monkeys Universal Pictures film which starred Bruce Willis (pictured). The series will star Aaron Stanford (Nikita, X-Men: The Last Stand, X2), Amanda Schull (Suits, Pretty Little Liars), Noah Bean (Nikita, Damages) and Kirk Acevedo (Fringe).
“12 Monkeys is a captivating time travel adventure and high stakes race against the clock,”said Syfy president Dave Howe. “We are thrilled to add it to our slate of engaging and thought-provoking new scripted projects including the recently announced event series Ascension and the second season renewal of Helix.”
