“Whiplash” star Miles Teller is set to star in “Drive” director Nicolas Winding Refn’s new crime-thriller series “Too Old to Die Young” for Amazon Studios.
Teller plays a grieving police officer who, along with the man who shot his partner, finds himself in a Los Angeles underworld filled with working-class hit men, Yakuza soldiers, cartel assassins, Russian mafia dons and gangs of teen killers.
Refn wrote the project with prolific comic author Ed Brubaker, and Refn is on board to direct the entire series which has been described as a “killers’ existential journeys in becoming samurai”.
This joins several other high-profile series in the works at Amazon such as David O. Russell’s mafia drama with Julianne Moore and Robert De Niro, Matthew Weiner’s “The Romanoffs” and Barry Jenkins’ Underground Railroad limited series
