Remember the Paul Bettany starring fantasy horror Legion from a couple of years ago? It got badly slated on its release, but I actually quite enjoyed the film for what it was. Yes it was exactly brilliant, but it was a lot of fun and opened up a cool new universe of Angels vs humans which, in my opinion, was well up for being expanded. Well SyFy have agreed to a new TV series set 25 years after the events of Legion, read on for details.
The Press Release:
The future of humanity hangs in the balance as the ultimate celestial battle descends to Earth in Syfy’s compelling new series “Dominion,” which has been greenlit to pilot by Syfy. Universal Cable Productions and Bold Films are producing.
Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), “Dominion” is an epic supernatural action drama set 25 years in the future after a war between an army of angels and mankind has transformed the world. The series follows the perilous journey of a rebellious young soldier who discovers he’s the unlikely savior of humanity.
Scott Stewart, who co-wrote and directed Legion, is back to direct the pilot, and is one of the project’s executive producers. Michel Litvak and David Lancaster of Bold Films are also executive producers. Vaun Wilmott, who is also writing the Syfy miniseries development project “Ringworld,” is writer and co-executive producer.
