Miles Teller and Nicholas Winding Refn are heading to L.A.’s criminal underground. The pair are teaming up for Refn’s new series at Amazon. Per Deadline:
Miles Teller (Whiplash) is set as the series lead for Amazon’s upcoming original drama series Too Old to Die Young, from Nicolas Winding Refn.
Written by Refn (Neon Demon, Drive) and Ed Brubaker (Captain America: Winter Soldier, Westworld), Too Old to Die Young explores the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles by following killers’ existential journeys in becoming samurai. The entire series will be directed by Refn.
Teller will play Martin, a police officer entangled in the world of assassins.
Is every visual creative going to a streaming service now? Is this the new wave? Only time will tell. But Miles Teller should be forgiven for that Fantastic Four reboot.
