Minority Report
Amblin co-president Justin Falvey has defended the upcoming TV adaptation of Steven Spielberg’s “Minority Report,” saying that this is one small screen reboot that will work because it’s not destroying the original film in the process:

“There’s a way to produce that as a series that is not stepping on the film. Our way into it [for Fox] takes place after the film, in terms of the time frame. It’s a great title and property, and there’s a great procedural engine that drives it.” [Source: THR]

“Michael Clayton” and “The Bourne Legacy” writer/director Tony Gilroy has confirmed he’s acting as a consultant for writer Beau Willimon on the upcoming third season of Netflix’s “House Of Cards”.
