Joe Wright To Direct ‘Black Mirror’ Episode For Netflix; Bryce Dallas Howard & Alice Eve To Star
EXCLUSIVE: Joe Wright is set to direct an episode of Netflix’s keenly anticipated new season of Charlie Brooker’s anthology series Black Mirror with Bryce Dallas Howard and Alice Eve on board to star. Created and written by Brooker, Black Mirror taps into our collective unease with the modern world and each stand-alone episode is a suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. The series, which premiered on Channel 4 in 2011 and aired for two seasons, has received an international Emmy Award, a Peabody Award, a Rose D’Or and been nominated for a BAFTA.
It marks an interesting creative choice for Wright after the big-budget Pan for Warner Bros. The director, who first emerged as one of the UK’s most exciting young directors with the likes of Pride And Prejudice and Atonement, should revel in the dark humor that permeates throughout the Black Mirror universe.
It was announced last year that Netflix would be ordering 12 new episodes of the acclaimed series from Brooker’s House of Tomorrow. Brooker and Annabel Jones, who exec produced the first seven episodes of the series, will continue to serve in that capacity as well as be showrunners for the new shows, which Brooker has written. House of Tomorrow is a part of the Endemol Shine Group.Read full article here.
