Domhnall Gleeson picture

Domhnall Gleeson ("Ex Machina", "Star Wars") will star as co-lead in the FX 10-episode half-hour limited series "The Patient" from Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields, the creative duo behind "The Americans".

The miniseries follows a psychotherapist (Steve Carell) who finds himself held prisoner by a serial killer (Gleeson) with an unusual request: curb his homicidal urges. But unwinding the mind of this man while also dealing with the waves of his own repressed troubles creates a journey perhaps as treacherous as his captivity.

The cast also includes Linda Emond ("Succession"), Laura Niemi ("Justified", "This is Us") and Andrew Leeds ("Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist").

Fields and Weisberg will co-write and executive produce. Carell will produce alongside Caroline Moore, Victor Hsu and Chris Long ("The Americans", "Suspicion"). Long will also direct the first two episodes of the series. Production is currently underway. Kevin Bray ("Succession") and Gwyneth Horder-Payton ("Pam & Tommy") will also direct episodes of the 10-episode series.

Gleeson will next be seen in the HBO limited series "White House Plumbers"


Pete Davidson picture

SNL star Pete Davidson has signed on to star in the Miramax horror thriller "The Home" which will be directed by James DeMonaco ("The Purge"). The script is penned by DeMonaco and Adam Canto.

The film follows Max (Davidson), a troubled man who starts working at a retirement home and realizes its residents and caretakers harbor sinister secrets. As he investigates the building and its forbidden fourth floor, he starts to uncover connections to his own past and upbringing as a foster child.

Production is expected to begin later this month. Miramax's Bill Block and Sebastian K. Lemercier will produce along with DeMonaco and Canto. Block had this to say about the project:
"We’re excited to be backing DeMonaco’s brilliant vision. James’ The Purge horror franchise has grossed over $450 million at the worldwide box office. With his masterful storytelling abilities and Pete’s versatility as an actor, this film will put audiences everywhere on the edge of their seats."
Davidson will next be seen in A24's slasher thriller "Bodies, Bodies, Bodies", and the romantic comedy "Meet Cute".
