ABC Plans “Enemy of the State” TV Reboot

ABC Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer Television are developing a TV series based on the 1998 Will Smith and Gene Hackman-led paranoia thriller “Enemy of the State” with a put pilot commitment handed out.

Morgan Foehl is writing the script for the television adaptation which is set two decades on. When an elusive NSA spy is charged with leaking classified intelligence, an idealistic female attorney must partner with a hawkish FBI agent to stop a global conspiracy that threatens to expose dark secrets and personal mysteries connecting all three of their lives.

Neither of the original actors is attached to the project in any capacity, but producer Jerry Bruckheimer is back on board for the series and will serve as an executive producer. The original film grossed $250 million worldwide.
