Nikita Alum to Star in Syfy’s 12 Monkeys

Aaron Stanford on Nikita.

With The CW’s Nikita having wrapped up its fourth and final season, production-wise, a few weeks ago, the news has come down that star Aaron Stanford (who played Birkhoff) has landed a leading gig over on Syfy’s TV series adaptation of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys.

Stanford and Amanda Schull (PLL, Suits) have joined 12 Monkeys in the project’s two lead roles – “Cole,” (who Bruce Willis played in the movie) a desperate and haunted man from the near future who travels to the present day to stop a deadly plague from being released on the world, and “Cassandra Railly,” (Madeleine Stow played “Kathryn Railly” in the film) a brilliant doctor who is forced to choose between her idyllic life or joining Cole’s mission to uncover the dangerous conspiracy.

Also joining in key positions behind the camera are Natalie Chaidez (In Plain Sight, V, Heroes) as Executive Producer/Showrunner and Jeffrey Reiner (Helix, Friday Night Lights, Caprica) who will direct the pilot and also serve as Executive Producer.

Based on the classic hit film, 12 Monkeys follows the journey of a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race.

Terry Matalas & Travis Fickett (Terra Nova, Nikita) wrote the pilot script and are Co-Executive Producers. Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven (American Hustle, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Trilogy) and Richard Suckle (American Hustle, The International), will Executive Produce. Roven produced the original film.

Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke…When She Was in Syfy’s TRIASSIC ATTACK!

Screen Shot 2013-08-30 at 4

The story goes that Emilia Clarke landed the role of Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones fresh out of acting school. Well, not quite. More like fresh off the Syfy original movie Triassic Attack, where she fended off a fiendish onslaught of reanimated dinosaur fossils!

First things first. I tooootally remember this behind-the-scenes video. I even wrote up a piece about it for IGN back and IGN and Syfy were working on making a monster movie together.

The movie starred Colin Ferguson (Eureka) as a small town Sheriff and the adorable Ms. Clarke played his daughter. The two butt heads naturally, that is until an invasion of giant dino-skeletons ravages their town.
