Doug Liman - Doug Liman To Adapt Denmark's The Legacy For U.s. Tv

Filmmaker Doug Liman has been tapped to revamp Danish family drama series The Legacy for American audiences.

The Bourne Identity director has teamed up with bosses at Universal Cable Productions to adapt the Tv show, known as Arvingerne in Danish, about the four children of a famed artist who battle over their late mother's estate.

The programme became an instant hit with critics and fans alike upon its premiere in Denmark in January (14) and now Liman has been hired to co-produce the U.S. version.

Liman tells The Hollywood Reporter, "The Legacy features the kind of extraordinary characters that are truly unique even as they remind us of some of our favourite (and craziest) relatives."

The Legacy is the latest Nordic show to be adapted for U.S. Tv - The Killing and The Bridge were also based on original European series.
