NBC reveals plans for a potential Devil’s Advocate series
NBC appears ready to raise a little hell with its plans to shoot a pilot episode for a potential series based on Tyler Hackford’s 1997 film The Devil’s Advocate.
The movie version featured Keanu Reeves as a young hotshot attorney who finds himself literally working for the devil (played with scenery-chewing glee by Al Pacino). The series will presumably cover the same narrative ground, only with a much larger story arc.
NBC hasn’t committed to a full run of episodes, but as /Film points out, it has a deal in place where it’ll have to shell out a significant amount of money to Warner Bros. if it doesn't move forward with it.
No word on who might fill the Reeves and Pacino roles, but we’ll share that info as soon as it’s revealed.
