John Malkovich is headed to HBO. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Billions star has joined the network’s follow-up TV show to The Young Pope, The New Pope.
Few details have been released regarding The New Pope, but it will follow the events of The Young Pope, which starred Jude Law as “an outrageously conservative figurehead who seems hell-bent on turning the world of the Vatican upside down.”
On The New Pope, Malkovich will join returning star Jude Law and writers Paolo Sorrentino, Umberto Contarello and Stefano Bises. The HBO series is set to being production in November.
What do you think? Did you see The Young Pope? Will you watch The New Pope?
Along with Jude Law and John Malkovich, Cécile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, J.David Hinze, Silvio Orlando, Javier Cámara, Tomas Arana, Ulrich Tomsen, Yuliya Snigir, Maurizio Lombardi and Massimo Ghini will be appearing in the new season which should be premiering in January 2020.
It really won’t be long now until television’s best returns.
