Universal Has a "Second Sight"



Universal Pictures is attempting to develop a big screen version of BBC's 1999 miniseries "Second Sight" under its banner.

Striving to give big screen treatment to a small screen production, Universal Pictures is in the middle of finalizing deal to make "Second Sight", the film version of BBC's miniseries of the same name starring Clive Owen, Variety has revealed.

Aired in 1999, the original focused on a police detective named Ross Tanner who is struggling to solve the brutal murder of a teenage boy before he completely goes blind. It was also aired in the U.S. via PBS and even spawned a sequel titled "Second Sight: Kingdom of the Blind."

Coming onboard to produce are Angry Films' Susan Montford and Don Murphy with series creator Paula Milne serving as executive producer. Trade adds that Owen at this point is not attached to again play the detective on the project.
