Amazon is going Hollywood. Deadline reports the streaming service has given a series order to The Last Tycoon.
Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final, unfinished novel, the drama follows the complicated relationship between talented Hollywood movie producer Monroe Stahr and intimidating studio head Pat Brady. The story is based on real-life figures Irving Thalberg and Louis B. Mayer.
In The Last Tycoon, Matt Bomer will play Stahr alongside Kelsey Grammer as Brady. The two join fellow castmembers Lily Collins and Rosemarie DeWitt.
