Syfy Turning LEGION Into TV Series

Well, if you weren’t disappointed enough in Scott Stewart‘s film Legion when it hit theaters back in 2010, maybe he can leave a bad taste in your mouth on TV this time. Deadline reports SyFy is developing a series adaptation of the film which followed the Archangel Michael (played in the film by Paul Bettany) as he disobeyed God’s orders and attempted to help the humans fight against a legion of angels sent to bring about the Apocalypse. I’ll give Stewart credit for knowing how to direct action, but the characters and story were weak sauce, and I can’t see how he can make things any better by directing and executive producing a TV adaptation of a film that just didn’t work. In addition, who will stand up to the sheer commanding presence of Paul Bettany? It’s going to be a tough sell.
