Relativity Television is partnering with Georgeville Television to produce a television series based on the 2011 film, Limitless. The film was produced by and starred Bradley Cooper who is set to executive produce the drama, with the film’s producers Leslie Dixon and Scott Kroopf serving as co-executive producers. The original film was based on the 2001 novel The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn.
“Limitless is the perfect example of Relativity’s multiplatform approach to creating quality content,” he said. Added Georgeville TV CEO Marc Rosen, “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.”
The film followed an unsuccessful writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret “smart drug” that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life.
There is no word on whether the series will feature the same actors as the film or if it will be an entirely new storyline around the premise the movie and novel founded. While Cooper will be involved in the series, he has not commented on whether he will reprise his role from the film.
Limitless opened at No. 1 at the domestic box office on its way to grossing more than $160 million worldwide and subsequently sold 2 million-plus home video units.
