'Metropolis' Gets TV Remake From 'Mr. Robot' Creator Sam Esmail


A “Metropolis” remake is in the works. Instead of going to the big screen, the revamped version of the 1927 sci-fi classic is heading to the small screen. Sam Esmail, the mastermind behind USA Network’s standout “”, will oversee the project.

According to , the movie is developed as a miniseries by Universal Cable Productions. It is still in early stage, but Email has signed a seven-figure deal and the production company is preparing to spend $10 million per episode.

Like the original film, the small-screen adaptation will take place in a future society where wealthy industrialists rule the vast city from high-rise tower complexes while a lower class of underground-dwelling workers toil constantly to operate the machines that provide its power. Risking everything they know, two star crossed lovers from opposite sides of the divide must find a way to bring down the whole system.
