Syfy's pilot "12 Monkeys" has cast Aaron Stanford and Amanda Schull in the project's two lead roles. Also joining in key positions behind the camera are Natalie Chaidez ("In Plain Sight," "V," "Heroes") as Executive Producer/Showrunner and Jeffrey Reiner ("Helix," "Friday Night Lights," "Caprica") who will direct the pilot and also serve as Executive Producer.

The 60-minute pilot is being produced by Universal Cable Productions and Atlas Entertainment, producer of the original Bruce Willis-Brad Pitt theatrical directed by Terry Gilliam and released by Universal Pictures. Production is slated to begin in December in Detroit.

Based on the classic hit film, "12 Monkeys" follows the journey of a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race.

Aaron Stanford ("Nikita," X-Men: The Last Stand, X2) will play Cole, a desperate and haunted man from the near future, who travels to the present day to stop a deadly plague from being released on the world.

Amanda Schull ("Suits," "Pretty Little Liars," "Center Stage") will play Cassandra Railly, a brilliant doctor who is forced to choose between her idyllic life or joining Cole's mission to uncover the dangerous conspiracy.

Terry Matalas & Travis Fickett ("Terra Nova," "Nikita") wrote the pilot script and are Co-Executive Producers. Atlas Entertainment's Charles Roven (American Hustle, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Trilogy) and Richard Suckle (American Hustle, The International), will Executive Produce. Roven produced the original film.
