Producers John Wells and Arnold Kopelson are teaming for a TV series adaptation of the 1997 Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino-led “Devil’s Advocate” for NBC.
Described as a “legal drama with a supernatural twist,” Warner Bros. TV will produce the project with NBC giving the project a put pilot commitment. Wells, Kopelson and Andrew Stearn are executive producing.
Matt Venne (“Bag Of Bones,” “The Exorcism Of Molly Harley”) is penning the series and serving as a co-executive producer. Like the film, it follows a public defender who joins a law firm run by the Devil himself.
Taylor Hackford helmed the movie which was based on Andrew Neiderman’s novel and also starred Charlize Theron. It managed a solid $153 million worldwide gross from a $57 million budget.
