by | January 13, 2006 | Comments

With a sequel already underway, it looks like New Line’s "The Butterfly Effect" is also about to make the leap onto television. Variety reports that a series based on the Bress/Gruber flick should hit the Sci-Fi network some time next year.

"With the bigscreen sequel under way, "The Butterfly Effect" is taking on series form at Sci Fi Channel.

Cabler has pacted with feature exec producers Anthony Rhulen, AJ Dix, Chris Bender and JC Spink on a series pilot based on the 2004 Ashton Kutcher starrer. NBC Universal TV Studio will produce.

Sci Fi is expected to announce the project as part of its 2006 development slate today during its portion of the Television Critics Assn. press tour. Already in consideration is the potential skeinskein "The Dresden Files" from exec producer Nicolas Cage.

"Butterfly Effect" revolves around a man who discovers he has the ability to go back and forth in time to change the future of himself and others — for better or worse.

Sci Fi programming exec VP Mark Stern said he’s been in the market for a "smart but accessible time travel series" for some time. " ‘Butterfly Effect’ really fits that bill."

Series would continue the story of Kutcher’s character, Evan, who in the movie attempts to improve the present by trying to mend past events."
