'Upgrade' Movie Is Getting a Follow-Up TV Series!

Upgrade is getting upgraded!

The Leigh Whannell-directed 2018 sci-fi thriller is getting a follow-up TV series, Deadline reported on Thursday (May 28).

The series is being co-created and executive produced by Leigh and Tim Walsh, who is the showrunner.

The series “picks up a few years after the events of the film and broadens the universe with an evolved version of STEM and a new host – imagining a world in which the government repurposes STEM to help curb criminal activity.”

The original movie starred Logan Marshall-Green, Betty Gabriel and Harrison Gilbertson.

Here’s a plot summary: “After his wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also leaves him paralyzed, Grey Trace (Marshall-Green) is approached by a billionaire inventor with an experimental cure in the form of a computer chip implant called STEM. The implant provides its host with heightened physical abilities, allowing Grey to exact revenge on those responsible for his wife’s death.”

Leigh Whannell also recently directed this film…
