From Willow to Fatal Attraction, all kinds of movies are being turned into television shows on the various streaming services, and we’ve learned that “Gattaca” is next up on the menu.
THR reports that the dystopian thriller from 1997 – which received an Oscar nomination for “Best Art Direction-Set Decoration” – is being turned into a series over at Showtime.
Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa (“Homeland”) are teaming with Craig Borten (Dallas Buyers Club) on the series adaptation of the 1990s movie, THR notes in their report.
Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman starred in the 1997 movie, which was “set in a not-too-distant future where eugenics is common and genetic discrimination is illegal.”
Andrew Niccol wrote and directed Gattaca, which also starred Jude Law. The film wasn’t a big success in theaters, grossing just $12.5 million against a $36 million budget.
