A series based on the Joona Linna book by Lars Kepler and starring Tom Hardy as Venom and Zazie Beetz as the Joker is headed to Apple TV+ in the way of Lazarus, an upcoming series.
Deadline reports that the show will follow police detective Saga Bauer (Beetz), an undercover investigator who takes residency in a maximum-security psychiatric hospital to learn more about the infamous killer Jurek Walter (Hardy).
Tom Hardy And Zazie Beetz To Star In ‘Lazarus’ Series
There is a new series that Zazie Beetz and Tom Hardy will work on together. In the final stages of development, Lazarus still needs to clinch the deal, and some deals are still being nailed down. It will star the 31-year-old Joker actress and the 45-year-old Mad Max: Fury Road actor.
“Lazarus” stars Beetz and Hardy as an intriguing leading couple. Beetz recently finished her role on the FX TV drama “Atlanta.” She has also starred in “Bullet Train,” “The Harder They Fall,” and voiced in movies like “Invincible” and “The Bad Guys.” Her upcoming roles include “Joker: Folie á Deux” and Steven Soderbergh’s HBO Max series “Full Circle.”
“Taboo” was Hardy’s last significant TV role before he became a recurring character on Netflix’s “Peaky Blinders,” a show about the darker side of late 19th-century London, and “Havoc” was his last significant film role before he became a recurring character in “Venom: Let There Be Carnage.”
There is a movie that he’s currently working on with Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, and Michael Shannon about a biker gang called “The Bikeriders.” “Venom 3” will also be released sometime in the future. “Lazarus” is a film that enables Beetz to showcase her dramatic acting chops while playing a serial killer, which sounds promising. “Lazarus,” which will likely premiere on Apple TV+ sometime next year, is sure to attract critics and audiences alike.
The Series Is Based On Lars Kepler’s Joona Linna Books
Based on a series of books written by Lars Kepler, a pseudonym for Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril and Alexander Ahndoril, Lazarus is based on some of the best-selling Joona Linna novels, which were lauded by outlets including the New York Times, Washington Post, and Entertainment Weekly, and sold over 17 million copies worldwide.
