It is interesting lately to observe the trend of big time movie stars transitioning to the small screen. The latest of this showbiz migration will see Emma Stone (Amazing Spider-Man, Birdman) and Jonah Hill (Superbad, Wolf of Wall Street) reuniting for a series called Manic with Cary Fukunaga (True Detectives season 1) directing. Check out the details below courtesy of Screen Rant.
“Based on the 2014 Norwegian series, Maniac tells the story of a man who lives in an institution and allows himself to slip away into fantasies in which he triumphs as the hero of a variety of different imagined scenarios. Fukunaga, Hill and Stone will executive producer the new project, with both Hill and Stone also taking on acting duties under Fukunaga’s direction. At present time there is no writer, but word has it that the project will be aiming for a straight-to-series commitment that will possibly last for two seasons. Michael Sugar and Doug Wald of production company Anonymous Content – whom Fukunaga worked with on True Detective – will also join in on executive producer duties.”
