Paul W.S. Anderson Developing “Mimic” Television Series for Miramax

Paul W.S. Anderson is on board to executive produce and direct the pilot episode of a “Mimic” television series, Deadline reports tonight, which will adapt the same Donald A. Wollheim-penned short story that Guillermo del Toro brought to the big screen in 1997.

The project is set up at Miramax Television, with Jim Danger Gray (“Orange is the New Black,” “Hannibal”) on board to write, executive produce and serve as showrunner.

Mimic revolves around genetically engineered insects who evolve, developing the ability to mimic their human prey, and the race to stop them from taking over.”

Mimic explores, on its surface, the idea of insects taking over,” Gray said in a statement. “Body horror, the anxiety of ‘a bug’ living inside of us, the death of truth, the denial of science and the rise of personal entitlement are at the heart of our show as it examines how society is eaten alive by an invasion that is laying bare its greatest insecurities and failures.”

The potential series is being shopped to buyers soon, Deadline notes.

Del Toro’s movie was followed by two sequels.
