According to Deadline, David Cronenberg's science-fiction horror classic Scanners may be headed to the small screen. The Weinstein Co.'s Dimension Films is developing a drama series adaptation of the movies about a group of people with telepathic and telekinetic abilities, with The Hills Have Eyes writer-director Alexandre Aja signed to executive produce the series and potentially direct the pilot. Bob Weinstein conceived the plan with Aja to convert the property into a TV show.

The TV series would be in place of the recently rumored remake headed for theaters. Dimension is already in talks with potential showrunners to create and run the series.
