Amazon is teaming up with “Drive” and “Only God Forgives” director Nicolas Winding Refn on the new crime thriller series “Too Old To Die Young” for Amazon Studios.
Scoring a straight-to-series order with ten episodes, Refn will serve as co-writer with acclaimed comic author and “Westworld” producer Ed Brubaker, with both to executive produce.
The story explores the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles as we follow various characters’ existential journeys from killers to avenging angels. The tone is said to be akin to Refn’s “Pusher” trilogy.
Three notable male actors have reportedly been offered roles, though no deals have been made. Refn will direct the series which will shoot in Los Angeles this Fall.
