As far as casting goes, the only information we have yet is that Tom Hardy and Zazie Beetz are involved, but that’s pretty exciting in and of itself. There’s no word yet on who will play the famous detective at the center of the book series, but if the gods are good, maybe it’ll be one of the Skarsgårds. 

“Lazarus” is set to be written, executive produced, and directed by edgy Norwegian screenwriter and director Øystein Karlsen. Karlsen is best known for being the showrunner behind some wildly successful Norwegian TV shows like “Dag,” “One Night,” and “Exit.” The series will be produced by Hardy Son & Baker, Hardy’s production company with producing partner Dean Baker. Additional executive producers include Beetz & David Rysdahl, Kepler, Niclas Salomonsson, A+E Studios, and Range Studios.
