It seems yet another Cult Horror Movie is making it’s way to the land of TV as Deadline are reporting that Miramax Television is rebooting cult 1997 horror sci-fi thriller movie Mimic
With no Guillermo Del Toro in sight, its been claimed that Resident Evil’s Paul WS Anderson will direct the potential pilot and executive produce the series with his longtime producing partner Jeremy Bolt.
Jim Danger Gray (Orange Is the New Black) will write the adaptation, executive produce and serve as showrunner.
Based on Donald A. Wollheim’s short story of the same name, Mimic revolves around genetically engineered insects who evolve, developing the ability to mimic their human prey, and the race to stop them from taking over.
“Miramax TV couldn’t be more thrilled to be in business with Paul Anderson, Jeremy Bolt and Jim Danger Gray on ‘Mimic,’” Marc Helwig, Miramax TV’s head of worldwide television, told Deadline. “Paul is one of the leading filmmakers of his generation in the world of science fiction, and we are excited to bring a bold new take on this classic title to life in television that will make your skin crawl, scare the hell out of you and speak loudly to these strange times we all find ourselves in. I couldn’t think of a better writer to bring this world to life than Jim Danger Gray, whose work I’ve admired for a long time.”
