Get a Trippy First Look at Jonah Hill and Emma Stone’s Netflix ‘Maniac’
If you thought Legion or Westworld were all the trippy TV you could handle, just wait until you see Cary Fukunaga’s Netflix Maniac. Our first photos of the Jonah Hill-Emma Stone remake have arrived, and it turns out going crazy is more colorful than we imagined.
Netflix released a first look at the new ten-episode series, which remakes the 2014 Norwegian drama of a man living a fantasy life in his dreams, but institutionalized in reality. Hill and Stone star along with Sally Field, The Leftovers alum Justin Theroux, Girls star Jemima Kirke, Julia Garner, Sonoya Mizuno and more. True Detective alum Fukunaga directs all ten episodes, while Netflix says of the series “Maniac is the story of two strangers who find themselves caught up in a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry.” Check out the photos:
Leftovers writer Patrick Somerville adapts the series, while Fukunaga, Stone and Hill executive produce the Paramount TV project with Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar and Doug Wald. Judging by some of the prior photos captured on-set, we haven’t seen the half of what Maniac has to offer.
Netflix has not yet set a formal premiere for Maniac, so check out the original series trailer below and stay tuned.
