After “Why Woman Kill”, Lucy Liu has already found a new series. She will be in the mini-series adaptation of “Later” (“After” in VF), the novel by Stephen King, produced by Blumhouse.
Lucy Liu at Stephen King
Stephen King continues to inspire cinema and series. The famous author has seen a large part of his literary work adapted. Inevitably, in the lot, not everything was relevant. But we always keep an eye on what’s being done, even when it concerns a lesser known, or at least more recent, novel by King. Like with After (Later in VO)published at the beginning of 2021. A little less than a year after the release of the novel, we learn from Deadline only a mini-series with lucy liu is in preparation. Production will be managed by Blumhousewhich immediately makes the thing quite attractive.
The actress is rather in a good period at the moment. She was front and center in season 1 of Why Woman Kill in 2019. And she is announced in the casting of Shazam! Fury of the Gods scheduled for 2023. In the meantime, we should therefore be able to discover it in this next series. The production of Later is only in its infancy but we can hope that it will take less time than that of the DC film.
The story of Later
The series will feature Tia, a single mother and owner of a literary agency. She lives with her son Jamie, who has the ability to speak to the dead. A power that will be more useful than in Sixth Sense since it will allow Tia to communicate with one of her deceased clients so that he can finish his book. She will thus be able to publish her novel despite everything and hope to save her business. According to this summary, we should therefore have a fairly faithful adaptation of Stephen King’s novel. The screenplay was entrusted to Raelle Tucker who worked on True Blood and Jessica Jones. While waiting for the release of the series, you can always look into Stephen King’s novel available in bookstores.
