Just one month after Fox ordered a pilot for their Minority Report TV series, the project has brought back one of the stars from the original 2002 Minority Report movie. Daniel London has signed on to reprise his role as Wally the pre-cog Caretaker in the pilot, with Li Jun Li also joining the cast. In the original movie, Daniel London's Wally took care of the three "precogs," whose psychic abilities helped the elite Pre-Crime Unit in Washington D.C. stop crimes before they are ever committed.
The series is set 10 years after the events of the movie, following the fall of PreCrime, where one of the precogs, Dash, is struggling to live a normal life, still haunted by visions of the future. He meets a detective named Lara Vega, who is haunted by her own past, but gives Dash a new purpose for his amazing ability. Daniel London's Wally assists in creating a new identity for Dash, while helping Lara along the way. Li Jun Li is playing a Crime Scene Investigation technician who works closely with Vega.
Max Borenstein (Godzilla) wrote the pilot script, with Mark Mylod (The Affair) slated to direct the first episode. Kevin Falls is serving as showrunner and will executive produce alongside Minority Report movie director Steven Spielberg, Max Borenstein and Amblin TV's Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey. It isn't known when production may begin on the pilot. Daniel London most recently appeared in guest-starring roles on episodes of Gotham, Manhattan and The Americans. Li Jun Li had a multi-episode arc in the first season of Fox's The Following, and she currently stars on the big screen in The Humbling.
