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.
One doesn’t necessarily know what to expect of a Netflix dark comedy series from True Detective director Cary Fukunaga, but Jonah Hill in braids wasn’t high on that list. See the actor totally transformed for Netflix’s Maniac, in first photos alongside co-star Emma Stone.
Another Leftovers leftover is coming back to TV. Justin Theroux is joining the already-stellar combo of Jonah Hill and Emma Stone in new Netflix dark comedy series Maniac, as helmed by True Detective and Beasts of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga.
It’s been a long road getting to the screen, but TNT’s The Alienist has finally descended. The Cary Fukunaga-produced murder-mystery adapted from Caleb Carr’s international bestseller has arrived, touting a star-studded cast.
Although it’s been a while since we’ve seen him behind the camera, Cary Fukunaga’s got a long string of projects in the works, including a Netflix series and an Alexandre Dumas biopic. As of today, he’s also attached to direct a movie based on a non-fiction account of the days leading up to the atomic bomb strike on Hiroshima.
It’s been close to a year since we learned True Detective and Beasts of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga had officially set a Netflix return to direct Jonah Hill and Emma Stone in new dark comedy series Maniac, which at long last is finally moving forward. Reports suggest that production will take place later this year, potentially setting a 2018 premiere.
