Diane Keaton Joins HBO’s “Young Pope”

Oscar winner Diane Keaton has signed on to star opposite Jude Law in the eight-part upcoming series “The Young Pope” for HBO and Sky.

Law will play Pius XIII who is a fictional American pope who becomes the most conservative leader the Catholic Church has ever seen.

Stubbornly resistant to the Vatican courtiers yet full of compassion toward the weak and poor, he faces the prospect of losing those closest to him – even his God.

Keaton will play Sister Mary, a nun from the U.S. now living in Vatican City. The project marks the first-ever TV series from Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino who will co-write all the episodes with Tony Grisoni, Umberto Contarello and Stefano Rulli.
