Fans were fairly surprised to learn a short while back that 20th Century Fox would be expanding their X-Men cinematic universe to the small screen with the upcoming Legion and Hellfire. Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley is writing the pilot for Legion which will tell the story of David Haller, a man diagnosed as a schizophrenic who has been in and out of hospitals his entire life until a strange encounter with a fellow patient confronts him with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might just be real. While speaking with Collider, prudocer Simon Kinberg enthusiastically comment on the project.
The producer further commented on how they’re trying to do something different with the series’ tone, similiar to what they’re doing with their big screen projects, and even compared it to a very well known and criticially acclaimed television series.
Finally, the producer added that if picked up the series would likely follow suit with FX’s other series and likely feature 10 to 13 episode seasons. There’s a lot of potential with this series and with the team involved, I’m definitely excited to see this one. Let us know your thoughts on Legion and Kinberg’s comments in the section below.
