Rebecca Hall will star in Amazon’s “Tales from the Loop,” an hour-long science-fiction series executive produced by “War for Planet of the Apes” director Matt Reeves.
Hall will play Loretta, a gifted physicist.
The genre series is based on the famous artwork of Simon Stålenhag. A co-production with Fox 21 Television Studios, the eight-episode series will be helmed by executive producer Nathaniel Halpern, with Mark Romanek directing the pilot episode.
“Tales from the Loop” explores the town and people who live above “The Loop,” a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe — making things possible that were previously relegated only to science fiction. In this fantastical, mysterious town, poignant human tales are told that bare universal emotional experiences while drawing on the intrigue of genre storytelling.
Reeves will executive produce “Tales from the Loop” under his Sixth & Idaho company with Adam Kassan and Rafi Crohn also on board as executive producers. Reeves is set to direct Warner Bros.’ upcoming “The Batman” film, which will see a new actor play the Dark Knight.
Hall is known for her roles in “Vicky Christina Barcelona,” “The Town” and “Iron Man 3” and “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.” She’ll appear in this spring’s “Teen Spirit” opposite Elle Fanning, and will part of the cast for Warner Bros.’ Godzilla-King Kong crossover “Godzilla vs. Kong,” which is out next year.
