Steven Spielberg has hired Godzilla writer Max Borenstein to create a TV series based on his 2002 sci-fi blockbuster Minority Report.

Minority Report starred Tom Cruise as Detective John Anderton, who runs the "Pre-Crime" unit in Washington D.C. that uses three psychics known as "precogs" to accurately predict crimes before they will happen, with arrests being made before the crime actually happens. The plot thickens when John is forced to go on the run after the precogs reveal he is about to commit murder.

The weekly series is said to focus on the elite Pre-Crime unit, with Steven Spielberg said to be eyeing a major star for the lead role, similar to how the producer lured Oscar winner Halle Berry to star in his CBS sci-fi series Extant.

20th Century Fox distributed Minority Report in 2002, which earned $358 million worldwide, but it's unclear whether or not the studio or the Fox TV network will be involved with the series.

Steven Spielberg is currently prepping his Untitled Cold War Thriller starring Tom Hanks, with The BFG set to follow after that project wraps, but the filmmaker is still said to be heavily involved in the development of Minority Report.

Aside from Godzilla, Max Borenstein also wrote the Universal Pictures/Legendary fantasy adventure Seventh Son. He is also working on Warner Bros.' Skull Island, a new King Kong movie that was announced at Comic-Con last month.
