Lionsgate is moving forward with an adaptation of Steven Moffat’s 2007 BBC series “Jekyll.”
“Jekyll,” which starred “The Hobbit’s” James Nesbit, was one of the first series to take a period drama and adapt it for a modern age. “Jekyll’s” showrunner Steven Moffat made modern adaptations famous when he bought Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective into the new millennium with “Sherlock.” “Jekyll” was Moffat’s first attempt at that trend.
According to The Tracking Board, Lionsgate will adapt the series for the big screen, with “The Nice Guys'” Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry set to write the script.
“Jekyll” ran for one season in the UK and told the story of Doctor Tom Jackman, whose dangerous alter ego, Mr. Hyde, threatened to destroy everything Jackman ever loved. In the series, Jackman’s friends Katherine and Peter were the only people who could help control Hyde when he was in control of Jackman’s body.
