“Under the Skin” director Jonathan Glazer’s cult 2000 crime film “Sexy Beast” is set to get a TV series prequel which is in development at Anonymous Content and Paramount Television.
The film starred Ben Kingsley as Don Logan, an ageing gangster who forces his former associate Gal Dove (Ray Winstone) to come out of retirement to pull off a heist for powerful crime boss Teddy Bass (Ian McShane).
The prequel will be set in the London criminal world during the volatile 1990s when Gal and Don were partners who worked for Teddy. Gal’s future wife DeeDee will also play a major part in the action.
“The Sopranos” and “Rescue Me” veteran Michael Caleco will pen and executive produce alongside the original film’s screenwriters Louis Mellis and David Scinto. There isn’t currently a network attached to the project.
