Mark Strong Could Reprise ‘Low Winter Sun’ Role for AMC
AMC is always on the lookout for its next great drama, after the runaway success of ‘Mad Men,’ ‘Breaking Bad,’ and ‘The Walking Dead.’ There’s still no word on the fate of ‘The Killing,’ ‘Low Winter Sun’ and another AMC pilot are poised to be the next drama on everyone’s lips. The original British ‘Low Winter Sun’ boasted the imposing Mark Strong, and now it seems the ‘Green Lantern‘ actor may reprise his role for American audiences.
According to Deadline, ‘John Carter‘ star Mark Strong is reportedly in talks to join AMC’s upcoming series ‘Low Winter Sun,’ portraying the very character he originated on the 2006 UK mini-series of the same name. Written and executive produced by Chris Mundy (‘Criminal Minds’), the AMC drama is described as “a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption that starts with the murder of a cop by fellow Detroit detective Frank Agnew (Strong).” Instead, the murder forever alters the detective’s life by activating forces that pull him deeper into the Detroit underworld.
Strong would reprise the role of Frank Agnew, for which he received strong accolades, joining actor James Ransone as Detroit organized crime syndicate member Damon Callis. Strong will next be seen in Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Zero Dark Thirty.’
