Variety has confirmed that HBO is in development on a series adaptation of David Cronenberg’s 1981 cult classic, Scanners. Soulmates creator William Bridges will serve as executive producer and showrunner, with Lovecraft County’s Yann Demange directing and executive producing. Cronenberg will unfortunately only take on an EP role.
The series is described thusly: “Pursued by relentless agents with unimaginable powers, two women living on the fringes of modern society must learn to work together to topple a vast conspiracy determined to bring them to heel.” Why can’t these agents just accept that a woman’s body horror is her choice?
