Gattaca has steadily grown into one of the most popular sci-fi films of its time, but its cult following has yet to develop it into a television series... until now. Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa (Dallas Buyers Club) are the first actors to collaborate on the series, and Showtime and Sony TV have made no statements.
With Dexter and Billions spinoffs on the way, new Showtime CEO Chris McCarthy is attempting to exploit any and every popular franchise he can, and is pushing this project relentlessly. While that doesn't mean this 1997 Gattaca remake or reboot will come to fruition, it usually does, as shown by reports.
Gattaca, a film directed by Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, was a total flop, bringing it in only $12.5 million against a budget of $36 million. However, it has since developed as a science fiction masterpiece, especially as its subject matter of cloning and eugenics becomes more and more plausible. Showtime appears to be capable of throwing a lot of money into it.
