If there’s anything we know about Apple, it’s going all-out to land the biggest names for each and every project. And now it’s landed one of the most sought-after actors around, LaKeith Stanfield, for a new series from Annapurna and the director of Queen & Slim.
Deadline reports Stanfield will star in The Changeling, an adaptation of Victor LaValle’s novel directed by Melina Matsoukas and written by Cruella and Venom writer Kelly Marcel. The story is described as an adult fairy tale, centering on a struggling bookseller, husband, and new father whose unusual life and knack for finding rare items is upended by a tragedy that sends him into a nightmarish version of New York City.
No word on when Apple will get moving on this, but with this much talent you can bet it’ll be soon. Stanfield will be seen next in Netflix’s western The Harder They Fall.
