‘Logan’s Dafne Keen Finds Her Next Project With ‘His Dark Supplies’
There have been many performances worthy of acclaim in 2017, however one of the crucial underrated was younger Dafne Keen’s in Logan. As Laura/ X-23, she went toe to toe with veteran actors Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart and managed to steal all the film proper out from below them. Many have an interest to see what Keen tackles subsequent, and it seems that she is staying within the fantasy/sci-fi realm with the extremely anticipated miniseries based mostly on Philip Pullman’s fashionable collection of novels, His Dark Supplies.
Whereas the 2006 movie adaptation of the primary novel, The Golden Compass, was met with a collective shrug of disappointment, followers have lengthy hoped that Pullman’s world of armor-clad polar bears, parallel universes, and complex takes on organized faith would get the display therapy it deserved. It was introduced in 2015 that Unhealthy Wolf, a manufacturing firm based by former BBC execs, would be teaming with HBO for an 8-episode miniseries, however it’s been a bit quiet since then.
Nonetheless, issues look like shifting ahead at a gradual tempo now, with Keen becoming a member of the mission as heroine Lyra Belacqua. Moreover, Entertainment Weekly reports that The King’s Speech‘s Tom Hooper is being circled to direct and Hamilton mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda is in talks to play sizzling air balloon pilot and adventurer Lee Scoresby.
A part of what went fallacious with The Golden Compass was the truth that the movie wasn’t given the room to handle the complicated themes of the novel. Certain, the animal daemons had been cool, however a variety of the fantastic thing about the novel was misplaced in translation. Right here’s hoping that the miniseries nails what has made the collection so fashionable and controversial all through the years.
