It sounds like a really big concept and we hit all the beats in the pilot, but it goes so much further into the series.It just gets really fascinating.” When “Legion’s” producers, Bold Films, decided to bring the concept to television, Wilmott was among a number of writers who met with EP David Lancaster and the film’s director Scott Stuart to pitch their ideas.After seeing “Legion,” Wilmott admitted that he was drawn to the dysfunctional dynamic between angelic brothers Michael and Gabriel (Carl Beukes), deciding to make twisted familial bonds the linchpin of his pitch. It’s very kind of epic in that way, and those two brothers have chosen two very different paths.Gabriel blames humanity for his Father’s departure, and Michael sees it very much as ‘no, He didn’t leave for that reason.“We’ve done zombies, we’ve done vampires, but I don’t think we’ve ever really gone into this sort of [angelic] mythology, and there’s a lot of that in this show.
It’s funny — I seem to be really attracted to this sort of story and that self-discovery and that big call on [my character’s] life, like David in ‘Kings.’ But it felt very new, something that we haven’t seen before,” the Australian actor previewed.
Rather than adapting “Legion’s” plot for the show, “Dominion” serves as a sequel, set 25 years after the events of the film, and Wilmott was confident that the series can stand alone for viewers who never saw the Bettany precursor.
“‘Legion’ is definitely the jumping-off point for the show, but the show is very much its own thing.
He left because he’s disappointed in us.’ So, they take a very different viewpoint on it, and it puts them at odds,” Wilmott explained.
In 2010, Paul Bettany starred in “Legion,” a supernatural action pic that cost million to make and generated million domestically, earning few fans among critics during its release.(The film currently has a rating of 20% on Rotten Tomatoes, and a Meta Critic score of 32.) Spinning off the high-concept movie — which saw Bettany play the archangel Michael as he attempted to protect humanity from a wrathful God and His army of destructive angels — into a television series must have seemed like a daunting prospect, but if creator Vaun Wilmott felt any pressure from the assignment, he didn’t let on when he spoke to ahead of the show’s June 19 premiere.
