WATCH: Jude Law, John Malkovich in first trailer for ‘The New Pope’
Jude Law and John Malkovich are seen as fictional popes in the first trailer for the upcoming drama series “The New Pope”.
The teaser for the project, directed by Paolo Sorrentino, shows Pius XIII (Law) strolling a beach peopled only by women. In contrast, John-Paul III (Malkovich) is shown in the Vatican in papal garb.
The new series is a follow-up to the 2016 show “The Young Pope” which also starred Law.
Returning cast members include Silvio Orlando, Javier Cámara, Cécile de France, Ludivine Sagnier and Maurizio Lombardi, joined by newcomers Henry Goodman, Ulrich Thomsen, Mark Ivanir and Massimo Ghini. Sharon Stone and Marilyn Manson are also set guest-star in the production.
The series had its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival last Sunday, Sept. 1. A wide release date has not been announced. RGA/JB
