Not so long ago we learned that Knifeman, a new television adaptation was on the cards with David Cronenberg on directing duties, and of course this had me smiling ear to ear, today we have our first piece of casting news.
According to Deadline, Tim Roth (pictured right) has been cast in Media Rights Capital’s TV series, Knifeman, which see’s Cronenberg directing and producing.
The TV series “centers on John Tattersall (Roth), a radical, self-educated surgeon who will go to unorthodox lengths to uncover the secrets of the human body.
The straight-to-series project was written by Emmy-nominated writer-producer Rolin Jones (Boardwalk Empire, Friday Night Lights, Weeds) from a story by Jones and Ron Fitzgerald (Friday Night Lights, Weeds).
