Paul Schneider and Jonathan Pryce Join Tales From the Loop for Amazon
Paul Schneider and Jonathan Pryce have decided to take the journey on Amazon’s latest series Tales From the Loop, according to Deadline. The duo will join recently announced Rebecca Hall in the hour long genre series, based on Simon Stålenhag’s acclaimed sci-fi art.
Tales From the Loop 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.
Per the report, Schneider will play a man named George, founder of The Loop’s son, while Pryce will play founder and leader of The Loop project, Russ.
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.
