Série baseada no filme de 1981 de David Croneberg ganha novas informações:

David Cronenberg’s ‘Scanners’ the Next to Get a TV Series!

by John Squires

September 27, 2017

Heads will explode on the small screen.

Back in 2011, we first heard rumblings of a television series adaptation of David Cronenberg’s Scanners, which at one point had Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) attached to direct. At the time, Dimension Films was developing the series, but all has been quiet on that front for some time now.

The silence breaks today, as Deadline reports that Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res and Bron Studios have acquired the rights to David Cronenberg’s 1981 film.

Ellenberg and Bron plan to develop and package the TV series adaptation with a high-end filmmaker and showrunner before shopping it to premium services,” the site notes.

Ellenberg will executive produce alongside Bron’s Aaron L. Gilbert and Danielle Reardon, as well as Clark Peterson (Monster) and Pierre David, who was an executive producer on the original film. Also serving as executive producers are Rene Malo (Decline of the American Empire) and Fanny-Laure Malo, who represent the rights holder on the property, Canada’s Laurem Productions.

In Scanners, written and directed by Cronenberg, “A scientist sends a man with extraordinary psychic powers to hunt others like him.”

Vai ser uma série dos X-Men, mas todos mutantes são a Jean Gray ou o Professor Xavier. Basicamente isso. hehehe

Pois é. Não vejo muita razão de ser da série. A trama do filme era bem genérica mesmo. O diferencial era a pegada "Body Horror" do Cronenberg mesmo.
