In the third Apple TV+ announcement today we learn that Luke Evans has been tapped to star in Apple’s Echo 3 action-thriller drama series, from Oscar winner Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker), Apple Studios and Keshet Studios.
Echo 3 is set in South America and follows Amber Chesborough, a brilliant young scientist, who is the emotional center of a small American family. When she goes missing along the Colombia-Venezuela border, her brother and her husband — two men with deep military experience and complicated pasts — struggle to find her in a layered, personal drama, set against the explosive backdrop of a secret war. Evans will play the role of Bambi, Amber’s brother.
Echo 3 marks the second straight-to-series order from Apple and one of Keshet International’s production arms, following Suspicion, Keshet Productions’ new drama starring Uma Thurman and based on Amit Cohen and Maria Feldman’s award-winning Israeli series False Flag for Keshet Broadcasting.
