Cary Fukunaga may not ever come back to True Detective (assuming True Detective returns in any way), but the Beasts of Simply no Nation director has another major TV undertaking in mind. Fukunaga has been knocked to direct a brand new series adaptation involving dark comedy Maniac, previously set to celebrity Emma Stone and Jonah Hill.
Deadline reports that the half-hour collection has been shopping a purchase order to various outlets, potentially straight-to-series for two full conditions. Jonah Hill and Emma Rock already locked in order to star, Maniac follows the 2014 Norwegian series of a man residing a fantasy life as part of his dreams, but in truth locked up at an establishment.
The two Superbad stars will have patients, while Fukunaga will more than likely direct all assaults. For the moment, no standard writer has nevertheless been chosen, though Fukunaga, Stone and Slope will executive build the Paramount TV project with Anonymous Content’utes Michael Sugar as well as Doug Wald.
Netflix seems like an easy selection, given Fukunaga’s operate and the fact that Maniac shares makers with the original Lilyhammer, although where might Maniac ultimately end up? Will probably Stone and Slope really stay on-board for two seasons, show commitment depending?
