Terry Gilliam Calls “12 Monkeys” TV Series A Dumb Idea

September 4, 2013

The classic 1995 movie 12 MONKEYS, which starred Bruce Willis, is being adapted for television and director Terry Gilliam doesn’t seem too thrilled.

I know nothing about that. That’s just ridiculous,” Gilliam tells ScreenDaily. “It doesn’t have anything to do with me and no-one has contacted me.

He added, “It’s a very dumb idea. That’s what I think. If it was going to be any good it would have to be written by David and Janet Peoples, who wrote the film, otherwise it would just be another version of Time Bandits.

Gilliam concluded, “The script was just wonderful and the cast turned out to be just brilliant – and I didn’t fuck it up too badly.

Brad Pitt was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor and won a Golden Globe for his performance. Does Syfy really think they can do better?
