Amazon’s Tales From the Loop Adds Rebecca Hall as lead
Deadline is reporting that Golden Globe nominee Rebecca Hall (Vicky Christina Barcelona) has been cast as the female lead in Amazon’s Tales From the Loop. Hall, whose credits also include The Town, The Prestige, Holmes & Watson, and the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong, will play Loretta, a gifted physicist.
Tales From the Loop is an hour-long genre series based on Simon Stålenhag’s acclaimed sci-fi art. The series explores the town and people who live above “The Loop,” a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe, making things possible that were previously relegated only to science fiction. In this fantastical, mysterious town, poignant human tales are told that bare universal emotional experiences while drawing on the intrigue of genre storytelling.
The show comes from writer Nathaniel Halpern (Legion, The Killing), director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo, Never Let Me Go), Matt Reeves’ 6th & Idaho, and Swedish production and management company Indio. Fox 21 Television Studios is co-producing with Amazon Studios.
Halpern, Romanek, and Reeves will serve as executive producers alongside Adam Kassan and Rafi Crohn (The Passage). Indio’s Mattias Montero, Samantha Taylor Pickett, Adam Berg, and Stålenhag will also executive produce.
