12-monkeysTerry Gilliam’s 1995 feature 12 Monkeys is heading to the small screen. The time travel tale is in development as a series with “Terra Nova” writers Travis Fickett and Terry Matalas attached to pen the pilot.

Inspired by Chris Marker’s 1962 short film “La Jetée”, 12 Monkeys begins in a post-apocalyptic future wherein a convict, James Cole (played by Bruce Willis in the 1995 film), volunteers to travel back in time in the hopes of learning how it came to be that the release of a deadly virus set the world down a path to its own near-destruction.

Chuck Roven and Richard Suckle, both of whom produced the original film, are attached to the series with a 90-minute pilot currently being planned. “24” helmet Jon Cassar is attached to direct.
