Enos and Kinnaman, who won widespread acclaim for their portrayals in the popular — and controversial — “The Killing,” which premiered in 2011 and ran three rocky seasons on AMC before jumping to Netflix for its fourth and final season, reunite in “Hanna,” a new version of the 2011 film that starred Saoirse Ronan as a teenage lethal weapon raised and trained by her fugitive father in the remote Finnish wilderness. The pair are hunted by a ruthless agent.

That agent in the eight-episode first season of the new series is Enos as CIA operative Marissa Wiegler. Kinnaman takes on the role of Erik Heller, Hanna’s father and a former soldier whose mercenary skills are paired with his dedication to protect his daughter from Wiegler. British newcomer Esme Creed-Miles plays Hanna in the series, which debuts March 29.

“It’s super wonderful to be back working with each other,” Enos says at Amazon’s Culver City headquarters, where she and Kinnaman have come together to discuss the series. Kinnaman smiles and nods in agreement.

Playing adversaries instead of partners marks a dramatic shift for the two actors — one they have excitedly embraced.

“It was a little trippy the first day we had shooting because the dynamic could not be more different,” Kinnaman says. “But after a couple of takes, it just flowed. We really work well together, and we pick up on little things each other does. I go this way a little bit, and she goes right there. It’s a little dance. It makes it so easy and fun.”

Their off-screen chemistry and affection for each other is evident as they talk in a large conference room. During a photo shoot, they chat and playfully tease each other. The tall, lanky Kinnaman spreads his legs wide, trying to position himself to be face-to-face with the petite actress, who wears a vibrant orange dress.

Hello Joel fans – we’ve got some exciting news! Joel is set to star in yet another project, as he has just been announced as one of the stars joining the upcoming Apple Space Drama From Ron Moore. This will be his third different series for a streaming provider, and he will be playing the top NASA astronaut Edward Baldwin! You can read more about the new project below, and we will keep you updated on any new information.

The Hollywood Reporter – The series will explore what might have happened if the space race never ended.
Three lead roles in an Apple drama series from Outlander’s Ron Moore have been cast.

Joel Kinnaman, Sarah Jones and Michael Dorman have climbed aboard the untitled project, which will explore what would have happened if the global space race had never ended. The drama received a straight-to-series order in December as part of Apple’s sizable (but as yet unseen) push into scripted series.

Kinnaman (Altered Carbon, Amazon’s upcoming Hanna) will act in his third different series for a streaming provider by joining the Moore drama. He will play top astronaut Edward Baldwin.

Jones (Damnation, The Path) and Dorman (Patriot) will play Tracy and Gordo Stevens, a prominent NASA couple.

Moore is no stranger to sci-fi, having worked on several Star Trek series and films and having created the 2004-09 Battlestar Galactica series. He serves as creator, executive producer and writer of the Apple series along with Fargo veterans Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi. Maril Davis is also an executive producer. The show hails from Sony and Moore’s Tall Ship Productions.

Moore’s project is one of more than a dozen scripted series Apple has in development. The trillion-dollar company has yet to announce when or how it will distribute all of those projects.

Collider | Once you’ve shrugged off your holiday hangover, can we take a moment to get officially hyped for Netflix‘s first big science fiction release of 2018? Altered Carbon won’t hit the streaming service until February 2, 2018, but Netflix has already released a string of dazzling teasers. The show, a sort of cyberpunk-y, space noir-y, action-y murder mystery is set nearly 300 years in the future, where immortality is real, but it comes with a catch. You see, you can store your consciousness on a chip, and when you shuffle off your current mortal coil, this chip can be implanted in a new body, or sleeve. Naturally, not everyone is psyched about this development — it presents a moral and metaphysical quandary, after all – and one such dissenter, an elite soldier named Takeshi Kovacs, is revived centuries after his death in a brand new “Joel Kinnaman-shaped” body for a unique purpose. He needs to solve an immortal man’s murder.

Does it sound like a lot? It sounds like a lot. It also sounds potentially cool as heck. (“Cool as heck” is a technical, safe-for-work term to describe something that “f*cking b*tching.”) Altered Carbon is based on a 2002 cult sci-fi thriller by Richard K. Morgan and the series is something of a passion project for its showrunner and creator, Laeta Kalogridis. The screenwriter bought the film options for the book around the time it first came out, but it was a pass from most major studios. However, now its found a home as a lavish series on Netflix. And Netflix seems to be pretty psyched for it. In addition to the two teasers Netflix dropped last month, the streaming service has also given fans a behind-the-scenes look at the series, that doubles as a kind of “Altered Carbon for Dummies.”

There are a bunch of reasons why Netflix might be betting big on the series. Yeah, it’s rumored to be one of the most expensive series that the streaming service has ordered, but it’s something of a sound investment. While Netflix’s programming strategy used to look haphazard — as though they were just trying to fit every audience niche possible — they’re starting to hone in on a specific genre that consistently does well for them. Since Stranger Things and Black Mirror became surprise hits for the service, Netflix has invested in sci-fi, fantasy, and thrillers in a big way. Case in point: Bright. Netflix spent over $90 million on the David Ayer orc cop-fairy pest drama and while critics (and my mom) hated it, the film netted over 11 million viewers in its first weekend on the site.

Altered Carbon has all the trimmings of a Netflix smash hit. It’s got sex, action, sumptuous visuals, a complicated murder mystery, and Joel Kinnaman. Yeah, I said “Joel Kinnaman.” The Swedish-American actor may not have made it big time on the big screen, but he consistently pops in Netflix fare like House of Cards and The Killing. So…are you hyped yet?

I have an exciting update for you today Joel fans! Netflix has finally set a premiere date for Joel’s new show, Altered Carbon; February 2, 2018. They have also released the first official trailer, which you can watch below. It looks really intriguing, I am so pumped for this show!

In addition to the trailer and release date, we also have the first 5 episode stills in high quality. They have been added to our gallery, and you can find previews and links below!

“Live forever, in the body you deserve.” Netflix has set a premiere date for Altered Carbon, its futuristic sci-fi series based on Richard K. Morgan’s cyberpunk novel. The series from Skydance Television starts streaming Friday, February 2. Check out a new teaser above that plays as an ad for Psychasec, the company behind the body transfers.

The Killing alum Jeol Kinnaman stars as Takeshi Kovacs, a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 300 years and is downloaded into a future he’d tried to stop. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized, human bodies are interchangeable, and death is no longer permanent. Kovacs is the lone surviving Envoy after they were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned, “on ice”, for centuries until Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder — that of Bancroft himself.

Martha Higareda also stars as Kristin Ortega, a smart and tough lieutenant in the Bay City PD who is following in the footsteps of her father, a cop who died heroically in the line of duty.

Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones) directed the first episode. Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross executive produce alongside Steve Blackman and Kalogridis’ Mythology Entertainment partners Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt. | Deadline

ShortList | Netflix have loooooooads of money, and they’re not afraid to spend it ostentatiously. Upcoming show Altered Carbon is rumoured to cost up to $7,000,000 per episode, which is LOADS. Like, that’s more than Game of Thrones cost when it started (it costs more than that now, due to ballooning salaries and stuff, but it also makes loads of dosh).

Based on the 2002 book by British author Richard K. Morgan, the show stars Joel Kinnaman, best known as Rick Flag in Suicide Squad and Robocop in the entirely unnecessary but not terrible remake.

Kinnaman has described Altered Carbon as “intelligent sci-fi”, and “something that’s never been done before”, adding that when he read the script he started drooling. If you actually picture that, it’s sort of gross (“Hi, I’m Joel, and if your script is good it better come with a bib!”), but it’s all meant very positively.

The production has been kept largely under wraps, filming in a massive Canadian studio and releasing very little in the way of info other than that there’ll be ten episodes initially and it’ll be out in 2018. But now, a super-secret Reddit user has leaked images – GIFs, no less – of the show’s world. The Redditor’s username, ‘lastenvoy’, is a reference to the book – Envoys are soldiers trained to withstand all kinds of hideous mental and physical torture.

The world looks pretty rad, all neon and Blade Runner-y, with that ‘future-knackered’ vibe that’s always fun, complete with futuristic hard-boiled sounding terms like ‘skin jobs’.

The book is the first of a trilogy following Takeshi Kovacs, a gangster turned Envoy supersoldier turned mercenary in a dystopian future where people’s personalities can be downloaded and passed from body to body.

If the show really takes off, it’s not necessarily great news for Joel Kinnaman – Kovacs is in a different body in each of the books, so he could easily end up as the Sean Bean/Mark Addy of it, done and dusted before the giant fun contract renegotiations. He’s probably doing just fine – weep not for Joel Kinnaman – but yeah.

Altered Carbon is coming to Netflix in 2018, which makes sense, because that’s in the future, right?
