Fox’s Minority Report adaptation is changing things up a bit.
EW has learned that Nick Zano has joined the cast as a series regular, with the Happy Endings and One Big Happy alum set to play Arthur, Dash’s (Stark Sands) twin brother. Yes, the new drama has put a twist on the film by having the twin pre-cogs be fraternal instead of identical.
Set 10 years after the end of Pre-crime in D.C., Minority Report follows Dash, who can see crimes before they happen. As he struggles to lead a “normal” human life, he remains haunted by visions of the future until he meets a detective (Meagan Good), who just may help him find a purpose to his gift.
Unlike his brother, Arthur has a hard shell, borne of years of difficult experience in the outside world that Dash avoided. Arthur is confident and self-assured, even Machiavellian in his interaction with the world that once exploited him. So while Dash selflessly and heroically tries to stop the future murders he sees in his precognitive visions, his estranged twin uses his gift to consolidate personal wealth and power in the building of an empire. Stronger together as a complete unit, they help one another from time to time, but in the long run both are bad for each other’s business.
Minority Report will debut Monday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
