Relativity Media is continuing its push into television by teaming up with Georgeville Television and Bradley Cooper for a drama series based on the 2011 movie Limitless. No writer has been attached at this time.
Bradley Cooper to executive produce Limitless TV series
Bradley Cooper will executive produce alongside Limitless producers Leslie Dixon and Scott Kroopf. Here's what Relativity Media's Ryan Kavanaugh had to say in a brief statement.
"Limitless is the perfect example of Relativity's multiplatform approach to creating quality content."
Georgeville CEO Marc Rosen also added the following statement.
"The film has an organic natural extension into a compelling and sophisticated one-hour drama that is both a thrill-ride and a social commentary."
Bradley Cooper starred in Limitless as a struggling writer who takes an experimental drug that allows him to use 100% of his brain, which causes his meteoric rise to fame and fortune. Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish co-starred. The movie, directed by Neil Burger, earned $161.8 million worldwide, from just a $27 million budget.
This project marks the second recent Realtivity Media feature to move to the small screen, following the Act of Valor series that was just given the green light by the National Geographic Channel.
Limitless was released March 18th, 2011 and stars Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Abbie Cornish, Andrew Howard, Anna Friel, Johnny Whitworth, Tomas Arana, Robert John Burke. The film is directed by Neil Burger.
