Sean Bean to play lead in Legends pilot

Silent Hill Revelation

Story by Jack Foley

SEAN Bean is to replace Brendan Fraser in Legends, a new pilot from the team behind Homeland.

The former Game of Thrones man will play a deep-cover operative named Martin Odum, who has the ability to transform himself into a different person for each job.

However, he finds his own identity being called into question when a stranger suggests that he isn’t who he thinks he is.

Legends is the latest TV pilot to come from Homeland executive producer Howard Gordon and was co-developed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff (The Day After Tomorrow), Alexander Cary (Homeland) and Jonathan Levin (Charmed).

It is based on the book from spy novelist Robert Littell.
