Remember Limitless? The Bradley Cooper movie from 2011 about the guy with the brain and the drugs? Well, CBS just ordered a pilot based on it. Cooper is among many attached to executive produce, along with Neil Berger (the Limitless movie director), who will also helm the project. Although the pilot is based on the movie, it will feature a new character — Brian Sinclair — who taps into the powers of NZT and is then forced to use his superhuman Mensa skills to solve weekly cases for the FBI. Yes, weekly, because time flies when you're using 100 percent of your brain.
