Hey, check it out, it’s a “Nikita” reunion! Nikita’s platonic BFFs Aaron Stanford and Noah Bean are re-teaming to save the world in the Syfy Channel’s adaptation of “12 Monkeys,” which we’re told is a complete “re-imagining” of the 1995 Terry Gilliam movie starring Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis. From the looks of this first trailer for the show, they weren’t kidding. Of course that was probably expected if you’re going to stretch out a movie into a multiple season long TV show.
I’m guessing the ending will also not be quite as bleak, even if this trailer does seem to hint at some seriously depressing life for our hero. The blonde is pretty easy on the eyes, too. She’s no 1995 Madeleine Stowe, of course, but who was?
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.
Starring “Nikita’s” Aaron Stanford, along with Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Zeljko Ivanek, Shannon Lucio, Jodi Lyn Brockton, and Noah Bean.
Monkeying around in January 2015 on the Syfy Channel.
