Tom Hardy & Zazie Beetz to star in Apple TV+ Drama Series titled 'Lazarus' while the series 'Dear Edward' Premiers this Friday and more
It's being reported this afternoon that Oscar nominee Tom Hardy and Atlanta Primetime Emmy nominee Zazie Beetz are set to star in the Apple TV+ drama series Lazarus, a project which is still nearing development and closing deals. The project is a co-production between A+E Studios and Range Studios and being sold to Apple.
Lazarus is based on the Joona Linna book series by Lars Kepler (pseudonym for Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril and Alexander Ahndoril), which has been lauded by such outlets as The New York Times, Washington Post and EW, selling more than 17M copies worldwide.
In the series, an emaciated young man is found wandering along a train track. Thirteen years earlier, he and his sister went missing, presumed victims of the notorious serial killer Jurek Walter. To find the sister, police detective Saga Bauer must go undercover in the maximum-security psychiatric hospital where Jurek Walter has been kept since his arrest years ago. Hardy will play Jurek Walter and Beetz will portray Inspector Saga Bauer, in what I hear is akin to Hannibal Lector-Clarice Stalling type roles. For more on this, read the full Deadline report.
