The duo will also reprise their roles and serve as the leads of the next installment in the Tales of Arcadia trilogy, DreamWorks 3 Below, set to debut on Netflix later this year.

Hirsch takes on the role of Jim Lake, Jr., originally voiced by the late Anton Yelchin. Yelchin completed his work on the first two seasons and a considerable portion of season three before his unexpected passing in 2016. Del Toro and his creative team found a unique way to incorporate a voice transition organic to the story and create a path for Hirsch, a dear friend of Yelchin’s ,to carry on his legacy and role. Yelchin’s performance has been left intact where possible and some portions have been merged with Hirsch’s performance to complete season three, according to Netflix and DreamWorks.

DreamWorks Trollhunters is created and executive produced by del Toro with Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow), Rodrigo Blaas (Alma), Chad Hammes (Dragons: Race to the Edge) and Christina Steinberg (Rise of the Guardians) serving as executive producers. Dan Hageman (The Lego Movie, Ninjago) and Kevin Hageman (The Lego Movie, Ninjago) serveas co-executive producers.

The series features a tale of two fantastical worlds that collide in an epic saga. Set in the fictional suburb of Arcadia, our unlikely hero, Jim, and his two best friends make a startling discovery that beneath their hometown lies a hidden battle between good trolls and bad, the outcome of which impacts their lives forever.

In DreamWorks Trollhunters Part 3 the fate of troll and human civilizations hang in the balance. The Trollhunters are racing to stop Gunmar and the now resurrected Morgana from bringing about the Eternal Night and shrouding the world in darkness forever. To defeat them, the team must seek the help of the legendary wizard Merlin to unlock his ancient magic and unleash a powerful weapon that will alter the course of their lives forever.

Premiering in 2016 to critical acclaim, Trollhunters introduced audiences to the seemingly quiet town of Arcadia and an ordinary kid who embarks on an extraordinary adventure in a hidden world right beneath his feet. The first season lead the 2017 Creative Arts Daytime Emmys with six wins, including writing for an animated program (Marc Guggenheim), directing (Rodrigo Blaas, del Toro), casting (Ania O’Hare, Mary Hildalgo) and a voice acting win for Grammer. The second season received four nominations for the 2018 Creative Arts Daytime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Children’s Animated Series.

The Emmy-winning ‘Orphan Black’ lead will make her New York stage debut in the off-Broadway production this summer.
Tatiana Maslany has been cast in the off-Broadway premiere of Tracy Letts’ Mary Page Marlowe, marking the Emmy-winning Orphan Black star’s New York theatrical debut.

The expansive but intimate new play by Letts, a Pulitzer and Tony winner for August: Osage County, examines the life of the title character, a seemingly ordinary Ohio accountant, through forgotten moments of pain and joy, success and failure. Maslany will be one of five actresses playing the protagonist at different points in her life, with the remaining cast to be announced.

Reviewing the play for The New York Times in its 2016 premiere at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company, Charles Isherwood called it “exquisite,” describing the work as a “haunting, elliptical drama about the evolutions, reversals and resurrections in a woman’s life.”

Directed by Lila Neugebauer, who drew unanimous praise last season for her staging of Sarah DeLappe’s The Wolves, the Second Stage Theater production will begin previews June 19 at the company’s Tony Kiser Theater, with opening night set for July 12. Neugebauer currently is represented off-Broadway with her production of Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo for Signature Theatre.

Maslany had previously planned to make her New York stage debut starring opposite Thomas Sadoski in the 2015 off-Broadway premiere of Neil LaBute’s The Way We Get By, which also was produced by Second Stage. But scheduling conflicts forced her to withdraw from that production, with Amanda Seyfried stepping into the role.

An experienced stage performer in her native Canada, Maslany recently was seen onscreen opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in Stronger; her upcoming film projects include Pink Wall with Jay Duplass, and Destroyer, in which she appears alongside Nicole Kidman.

Tatiana Maslany and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are the frontrunners for the female lead in Gemini Man, an action movie to star Will Smith.

Ang Lee is directing the movie, which hails from Skydance and Paramount.

Smith is playing two roles in the unique actioner. One is that of Henry, an aging assassin who wants to get out of the business but finds himself in a battle with the ultimate opponent: his clone, who is 25 years younger and at the peak of his abilities.

Clive Owen, meanwhile, is in talks to play the head of the cloning program, one of the villains of the movie, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Maslany and Winstead have read and are testing for the role of Danny, an operative who works for the same company as Henry and is tasked to surveil him. However, she soon teams up with him. Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) is also in the running for the female lead.

A decision for the part will be made soon as the movie is eying a February start with an international shoot that would include locations ranging from Savannah, Georgia to Budapest, Hungary.

Maslany is the award-winning actress who starred in her own clone project, Orphan Black. She starred with Jake Gyllenhaal in the drama Stronger.

Winstead is coming off a turn in season three of FX’s acclaimed Fargo.

Tatiana Maslany won’t be striking a Pose.

Earlier Wednesday, FX officially announced a series order for Ryan Murphy’s Pose, which features the most trans series regulars ever on an American television show. But noticeably absent from the release was Maslany, who had previously been cast as a modern dance teacher who develops a relationship with Damon (Ryan Jamaal Swain).

Now the network has confirmed that the Orphan Black star has exited the drama, with the role having been “reconceived and rewritten to be a 50-year-old African-American woman.” This has led to the casting of ER and Law & Order: SVU alum Charlayne Woodard.

Maslany recently wrapped her five-season, Emmy-winning run on Orphan Black, in which she starred as more than 10 different clone characters. Meanwhile, in addition to joining Pose, Woodard is set to reprise her Unbreakable role as the mother of Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) in M. Night Shyamalan’s 2019 sequel Glass.

Pose will premiere on FX in the summer of 2018.

Tatiana Maslany, who won an Emmy for her role in Orphan Black, and Sebastian Stan from the Captain America and Avengers franchises along with the Oscar-buzzed-about I, Tonya, are in negotiations to join Nicole Kidman in the crime thriller Destroyer. The feature is being directed by Karyn Kusama from an original screenplay by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. 30WEST is fully financing the film with Fred Berger of Automatik, who will be producing alongside Hay and Manfredi.

This brings the team together of Kusama, Hay and Manfredi who were behind the critically acclaimed 2015 film The Invitation.

Destroyer follows the moral and existential odyssey of LAPD detective Erin Bell who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a gang in the California desert with tragic results. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past.

Rocket Science is handling international sales, which began at the American Film Market, where Bliss Media acquired the distribution rights to Destroyer in China. ICM Partners and CAA are representing the North American rights.

The BBC America’s Orphan Black (for which Maslany won an Emmy) finished its five-series run earlier this year. Most recently, the actress starred alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Lionsgate’s Stronger, and has also appeared in films such as The Other Half, Two Lovers and a Bear, Woman in Gold, and The Vow.

Stan portrays Tonya Harding’s disgraced husband, Jeff Gilooly in I, Tonya. 30WEST will co-distribute the film with Neon on Dec. 8th. The actor is currently filming the next installation of the Avengers series and will reprise his role of Bucky Barnes in The Winter Soldier in Avengers: Infinity War next spring. Stan has also appeared in I’m Not Here, Logan Lucky, The Martian and Black Swan.

Maslany is repped by ICM Partners and The Characters Talent Agency; Stan is by ICM Partners and Brookside Artist Management.

Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tatiana Maslany Join Ryan Murphy’s ‘Pose’

The FX pilot centers on the ball culture in 1980s New York City.
Ryan Murphy’s 1980s FX drama Pose is rounding out its cast.

Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tatiana Maslany have joined the pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The drama looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in 1980s New York: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.

Peters and Mara, both of whom have worked with Murphy on American Horror Story, will play a New Jersey couple named Stan and Patty who get sucked into the glamor and intrigue of ’80s New York City.

Van Der Beek will portray Stan’s financial kingpin boss. Maslany is set as a modern dance teacher who takes a special interest in the talent of Damon (previously announced cast members Ryan Jamaal Swain.)

Murphy and FX made history Wednesday when it was announced that the pilot will feature five transgender actors in a series regular roles — a scripted TV record. The castings came after a six-month nationwide casting call for the project.

Murphy co-created the show with frequent collaborator Brad Falchuk (Glee, American Horror Story) and Steven Canals. Murphy’s People v. O.J. Simpson collaborators Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson as well as Alexis Martin Woodall (The Normal Heart, Feud, American Horror Story) and Sherry Marsh (Vikings) will exec produce the drama. Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions will co-produce.

If picked up to series, this would mark Murphy’s fourth at FX, joining anthologies American Crime Story, American Horror Story and Feud. He also the upcoming Fox drama 911, set to premiere midseason.

For Peters, the role comes after frequent starring roles on various iterations of American Horror Story, where he is currently starring in season seven. The actor, whose other credits include the X-Men franchise, is repped by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.

If picked up to series, Pose would be Mara’s first series regular role since Netflix’s House of Cards. In addition to appearing on the first season of AHS, her other credits include We Are Marshall, Shooter, Brokeback Mountain and the Fantastic Four reboot. She is repped by UTA, Mosaic, and Stone, Genow, Smelkinson, Binder & Christopher, LLP.

Van Der Beek joins the Murphy-verse after most recently playing a fictional version of DJ Diplo in Vice’s first scripted series, What Would Diplo Do? The Paradigm-repped actor’s many other TV credits include Dawson’s Creek, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, Criminal Minds and CSI: Cyber.

Pose would mark Maslany’s first TV role since Orphan Black ended its run in five-season run in August. She earned an Emmy award for best actress in a drama for her work in the BBC America series and also recently starred in the Boston Marathon drama Stronger. She is repped by ICM and The Characters in Canada.
