HBO Max has released the first images for BBC One’s upcoming mystery limited series The Tourist, starring Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan. The photos, which you can check out in the gallery below, feature our first look at Dornan’s character who is seen alone in the middle of the hot Australian desert road. In addition, Deadline brings word that The Matrix alum Hugo Weaving has decided to exit the project due to scheduling conflicts. The vacant role of Agent Lachlan Rogers will now be filled in by Damon Herriman (Mindhunter).
The Tourist sees Jamie Dornan starring as a British man who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback being pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road. An epic cat and mouse chase unfolds and the man later wakes in hospital, hurt, but somehow alive. Except he has no idea who he is. With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, The Man’s search for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving outback.
Joining Dornan are Danielle Macdonald as Helen Chambers, a fledgling Probationary Constable, and Shalom Brune-Franklin as Luci, a waitress who’s swept into The Man’s journey for answers.
The six-episode miniseries will written and executive produced by acclaimed writers Harry and Jack Williams. HBO Max will co-produce and be the US streaming home of The Tourist. It will also be executive produced by Two Brothers Pictures’ Christopher Aird and Andrew Benson, and BBC’s Tommy Bulfin along with Chris Sweeney, who is also set to direct. Lisa Scott will be serving as a producer.
