Taika Waititi, Jude Law Circling Showtime Adaptation of ‘The Auteur’
Cable provider Showtime is developing an adaptation of the comic series The Auteur and Taika Waititi and Jude Law are reportedly set to join the show.
Waititi is set to co-write and direct the series with Law in talks to star.
The description of the series is as follows: “Fresh off the biggest bomb in Hollywood history, producer Nathan T. Rex enters a downward spiral of drugs and depravity in a quest to resurrect his career and save his soul. Over budget and behind schedule on President’s Day, he is backed into a corner by bad publicity, a crap project, and studio politics. But enlisting serial-killer-turned-murder-consultant Darwin, his trusty assistant Igor, narcotics from Doctor Love, and the lovely actress Coconut, T. Rex will stop at nothing in his quest for cinematic fame and glory. God help us all”
Super violent, funny and insane, it sounds like it is right up Taika Waititi’s alley. Let’s hope they don’t dumb it down for the small screen.
