New Sorrentino papal drama in the works

Share

Jude Law's The Young Pope is getting a new twist - a new series called The New Pope with HBO! Variety announced today that Young Pope auteur Paolo Sorrentino is developing not a sequel or continuation, but a followup, entitled The New Pope. Sorrentino's unpredictability and gorgeous artisanship won him many fans with The Young Pope, viewers who will probably be predisposed to check out whatever this New Pope has to offer.

Variety reports that the show will not be a second season of The Young Pope, but it will be "set in the world of the modern papacy".

Jude Law's turn as Pope Pius XIII was meme-ready as soon as HBO's promo materials for the show hit the internet.

Sorrentino is writing the screenplay with The Young Pope co-writer Umberto Contarello, and plans are for the series to go into production in Italy in late 2018.

It will be coproduced by Lorenzo Mieli and Mario Gianani for FremantleMedia's Italian prodco Wildside and Spanish giant Mediapro.

As for Law, he may pop up to hand over the big hat, but we wouldn't bet on it, as Sorrentino appears clear that this is not a continuation of The Young Pope.

The casting for the role of the new pope and other characters has just begun.

It's also safe to say that the show will be primarily in English, as was "The Young Pope".
