Fox reportedly orders a 'Minority Report' TV pilot

It looks like that fabled TV adaptation of Minority Report is poised to become a reality. According to Deadline, Fox has ordered a pilot episode for Steven Spielberg's attempt to continue the storyline of his ambitious and occasionally prophetic sci-fi movie. Not that you'll likely see Tom Cruise or other familiar figures, mind you. The hoped-for series reportedly takes place 10 years after the film and focuses on one of the Precogs' (crime predictors') attempts to adjust to normal life with the help of a detective who finds ways to use those mental talents. There's no word on when the pilot could be ready, but the show at least appears to be more than just a twinkle in Amblin Television's eye.
