The “Succession” Emmy winner said he also directs a series on the Boeing 737 Max crashes at Amazon.
Jeremy Strong has his next two projects in place, as he revealed in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
The “Succession” Emmy winner and “Armageddon Time” star will direct two new limited series about real-life plane crashes. Thanks to Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner’s Plan B Entertainment, Strong said he was set to star in an Amazon Prime Video series about the causes of the Boeing 737 Max crashes, which killed 346 people. Strong is set to play a composite character engineer inspired by the real Boeing team.
Strong also says he’s collaborating with BAFTA winner Tobias Lindholm (“The Good Nurse,” “Another Round”) for a “‘Chernobyl’-esque” limited series about cancers and the lasting effects for first responders of the 11 september. Lindholm will write and direct the series.
Strong has previously starred in Plan B Entertainment’s other films “Selma” and “The Big Short.” According to Plan B co-president Gardner, Strong checks in daily.
“A big part of it is anticipating what will happen when the ‘estate’ is over,” Gardner told The Hollywood Reporter. “We both envision a large constellation of co-efforts.”
HBO’s hit series “Succession” recently won Outstanding Drama Series at the 2022 Emmys and has wrapped production on Season 4. However, writer and executive producer Georgia Pritchett previously revealed to The Times in 2021 that she believes the “maximum would be five seasons”.
Strong contemplated his career after “Succession,” telling THR that he told his agent two years ago, “There are two things I always look for, and that is the possibility of transformation and the possibility of risk. »
Strong added, “I guess everything else is a bit of a bunny slope.”
The ‘Trial of the Chicago 7’ actor made waves in 2021 for sharing his method acting techniques in a now infamous New York profile. Strong told IndieWire that after being part of “Succession” for more than six years, his character Kendall Roy has sometimes become “indistinguishable” from himself.
“That tangle is a really important and vital place where elements of yourself and elements of your work merge. It’s impossible to delineate where one ends and the other begins,” Strong explained. “It’s something I’ll probably carry with me from now on. The show has become somewhat iconic. [Though] Kendall, to me, is just another role I play.
