Tom Hardy, Zazie Beetz will be our new Hannibal-Clarice archetype

Tom Hardy and Zazie Beetz will be your new Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling. Of sorts.

According to Deadline, the two are set to star in Lazarus, a new Apple TV+ series based on the Lars Kepler novel of the same name. Hardy will play Jurek Walter, a serial killer incarcerated at a maximum-security psychiatric hospital; Beetz will play Saga Bauer, a police detective who goes undercover to get Walter to reveal the location of a missing girl. Though the show is based on the seventh novel in the Det. Joona Linna franchise, it’s not yet clear who would play Linna. At the moment, the idea is just, “Look, The Snowman didn’t land, sure, but after The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, we’re still gonna give this Scandinavian airport-novel thriller with a supervillain thing another go, okay?”
