Carnival Row has a new leader. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Paul McGuigan has been replaced by Jon Amiel for the upcoming Amazon TV show.
The fantasy drama is set in a neo-Victorian city where “mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland have gathered in the city, and tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population.” The cast includes Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, David Gyasi, Indira Varma, Karla Crome, and Tamzin Merchant.
It’s unclear why Amazon and McGuigan have parted ways, but Carnival Row is still slated to premiere on the streaming service in 2019.
