Jude Law and Paolo Sorrentino are teaming up once again to explore the modern Catholic Church with The New Pope.
The Sky, HBO and CANAL+ original co-production, created and directed by the Academy Award winning director, is Sorrentino’s second limited series set in the world of the modern papacy, following The Young Pope. The cast features Jude Law and other returning cast from The Young Pope, including Silvio Orlando, Javier Cámara, Cécile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, Maurizio Lombardi. New cast joining the limited series are Henry Goodman, Ulrich Thomsen, Mark Ivanir and Massimo Ghini – and, at the head of them, John Malkovich.
Now, the first image from the series has been revealed, giving us an official look at Law and Malkovich.
The New Pope is written by Paolo Sorrentino with Umberto Contarello and Stefano Bises and is produced by Lorenzo Mieli and Mario Gianani for Wildside and co-produced by Haut et Court TV and Mediapro. All eight episodes are directed by Sorrentino. No release date has yet been confirmed, but it will premiere on Sky Atlantic in the UK. In the meantime, you can catch up with The Young Pope on Sky Box Sets and NOW TV.
“A highly nuanced and elegantly mounted piece of televisual spectacle,” we wrote in our review.
