Syfy Working on a 12 Monkeys TV Show

Syfy is developing a TV series based on the 1995 Bruce Willis–Brad Pitt movie 12 Monkeys. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the current plan is for a 90-minute TV movie that would then launch a full series order, probably in 2014. Like the movie, the show will be set in a postapocalyptic future in which a time-traveling convict tries to track down the origins of a planet-destroying virus. No word yet on whether this bumps a Waterworld TV show out of contention, but there are only so many seats at the table.
