Several people messaged me about this last night. Look what popped up on Instagram:
Gossip Genie? Lupita Nyong’o and Cary Fukunaga?
Ummmm….yeah? YES! YES PLEASE.
It’s a perfect match. This is not a JLO-Slum Bear situation. This is balanced, even, same. And by same I mean they’re both awesome. So, if you could, please work on it with me, thanks.
In other Cary news, sounds like he’s lined up his next project. It’s a series for TNT called The Alienist about hunting down a serial killer; he’s executive producing and will direct the pilot. Garrett Hedlund is reportedly negotiating to star. Good move for Garrett. I don’t know if this is exactly outside of Cary’s wheelhouse though. I mean there’s no doubt he can do it from his experience on True Detective. So for him, I’m actually not that excited. But if he’s planning on a comedy starring Lupita, I’m totally in.
