Jude Law Set to Star in THE THIRD DAY for Sky and HBO
On the heels of the massively successful limited series Chernobyl, Sky and HBO are teaming back up to bring another limited series to the cable outlet entitled The Third Day. Marc Munden (National Treasure, Utopia) will direct with Adrian Sturges (Chimerica, Summerland) producing alongside series writer and co-creator Dennis Kelly (Utopia, Pulling). Variety reports the following synopsis for the series:
Law stars as Sam, who after being drawn to a mysterious Island off the British coast, is thrown into the unusual world of its secretive inhabitants. Isolated from the mainland, the rituals of the island begin to overwhelm him, and he is confronted by a trauma from his past. As the line between reality and fantasy blurs, Sam finds himself immersed in a quest that puts him at odds with the islanders.
This sounds interesting and like it could get a little crazy. Production is set to start in July, and we should be seeing this series in 2020. Are you interested in the story of The Third Day?
