The Hollywood Reporter
The Hollywood Reporter managed to score the very first stills from the Starz original series “Da Vinci’s Demons,” and we have a look at them right here, right now. Be aware, though… there’s really not much to look at. See for yourself.
The action-adventure drama stars Tom Riley as Da Vinci and tells the “untold” story of a 25-year-old Da Vinci during his turbulent youth in Renaissance Florence as the artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer, and idealist struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time. He begins to not only see the future but invent it. Laura Haddock and Lara Pulver also star.
“Da Vinci’s Demons,” a Starz/BBC Worldwide Productions co-production, will premiere next year on Starz.
In a world where thought and faith are controlled, one man fights to set knowledge free. Leonardo da Vinci is tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He finds himself in a conflict between truth and lies, religion and reason, past and future. His aspirations are used against him by the opposing forces of the time – luring him into a game of seduction where those who despise his intellect need him most. His quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing. Da Vinci throws himself into his genius and emerges as an unstoppable force that lifts an entire era out of darkness and propels it into light. His story becomes a mirror into our own world, calling us all to join his fight to free the future.
