The CW is dipping into the past again. The network has picked up a pilot remake of the 1990’s action-thriller La Femme Nikita. Beginning first as a French film by Luc Besson in 1990, ‘Nikita’ was then remade as a U.S. film starring Bridget Fonda called Point of No Return in 1993 and then again as a TV series in 1997 running on USA Network.
McG will executive produce the ‘Nikita’ remake — which will diifer from the others in that Nikita goes rogue and a new assassin is trained to replace her — along with Peter Johnson and Craig Silverstein (who will also write). The CW also picked up an untitled family drama set on a Wyoming horse farm from the Gilmore Girls producing team of Amy Sherman Palladino and Dan Palladino.
Just to note, THR has set up a great site that tracks all the pilots that are being picked up. You can check it out at Hollywood Reporter Pilot Blog.
