‘The Devil’s Advocate’ to be turned into a TV series
Produced by John Wells and Arnold Kopelson
The legal drama with a sinister twist, The Devil's Advocate starred Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino and stormed the box office back in 1997 – grossing $153 million dollars on a $57 million budget. Now, almost two decades later, it has been revealed that NBC are developing a TV series directly inspired by Andrew Neiderman's novel of the same name.
Written by Matt Venne (Bag Of Bones, The Exorcism Of Molly Harley), the series centres on a public defender who joins a law firm that is run by the Devil himself. A pilot is said to have been committed to.
The news comes at the same time as a TV announcement from Keanu Reeves himself. The Devil's Advocate star has set his sights on the small screen, signing to a TV adaptation of Barry Eisler's bestselling Rain book series.
At this stage there are no details on the cast that will star in the NBC TV adaptation of The Devil's Advocate.
