Back in March we first learned about “Knifeman”, a new television adaptation heading our way from David Cronenberg, and today comes word as to who will be starring in it. Read on for the details.
Deadline reports that Oscar nominee Tim Roth has signed on to star in the Media Rights Capital TV series. Cronenberg is set to direct the “Knifeman” pilot and executive produce the series, which centers on John Tattersall (Roth), a radical, self-educated surgeon who will go to unorthodox lengths to uncover the secrets of the human body.
The straight-to-series project, which is expected to be taken out to networks shortly, was written by Emmy-nominated writer-producer Rolin Jones (“Boardwalk Empire”, “Friday Night Lights”, “Weeds”) from a story by Rolin and Ron Fitzgerald (“Friday Night Lights”, “Weeds”). Jones and Fitzgerald serve as executive producers with Cronenberg.
Look for more soon!
