Syfy goes straight to series with ‘Dominion,’ based on ‘Legion’ film

By Daniel S Levine,

Syfy is moving forward with another project based on a film. Dominion, which is based on the 2010 film Legion, has been ordered to go straight to series.

Dominion is a Universal Cable Productions project and centers on a young man who discovers that he’s the savior of mankind in a future where there’s been a war between angels and man. The 2010 film starred Paul Bettany and was directed by Scott Stewart.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will star Kings actor Chris Egan in the lead role. Other members of the cast include Tom Wisdom (300), Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones), Alan Dale (Lost), Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Luke Allen-Gale (The Borgias).

Stewart has returned to direct the pilot and will executive produce the series going forward. Bold Films' Michel Litvak and David Lancaster, who also worked on Legion, will executive produce as well. Vaun Wilmott wrote the pilot. It’s expected to air next year.

Dominion will continue Syfy’s new strategy to commission stand-out genre series that deliver the high-stakes, sci-fi/fantasy experience our audience demands and embraces,” Syfy president Dave Howe said in a statement, notes Deadline.

The network is also developing a pilot based on Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys.
