The Batman spin-off will feature the character Commissioner James Gordon
The Gotham project, among the network’s top priorities, will move forward with a pilot directed by Danny Cannon, Deadline.com reports.
Fox and Warner Bros TV have brought on the veteran British director behind Judge Dredd and I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, whose TV directing credits include episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, Nikita and Shameless.
Originated by The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller, Gotham draws its inspiration from the universe of Batman comics, although the superhero will be nowhere to be seen. Adapted from the comic book Gotham, the series is an origin story on Commissioner Gordon, showing how Gotham City’s police chief dealt with the city’s legendary villains before Batman arrived on the scene.
The character of James Gordon, created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane, made his debut in the first Batman comic in 1939. On the silver screen, the commissioner was most recently played by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. — AFP Relaxnews
