I Married an Alienist

Just the other day my boyfriend was haranguing me about what Dakota Fanning was up to and now I have his answer -- she's been filming The Alienist, TNT's upcoming adaptation of the 1994 Caleb Carr book about the earliest crime profilers; basically think The Knick meets CSI. The series is being directed by Jakob Verbruggen, who made the splendid gay fireworks of London Spy (he replaced Cary Fukunaga). My memory on the book is fuzzy, I loved it when it came out, but I'm pretty sure the whole thing's about them chasing a single serial killer? Anyway Luke Evans, who co-stars opposite Dakota and Daniel Brühl, just tweeted out the first trailer, so here tis. It looks very very Knick-ian.

Loved the novel and the series looks intriguing. I remember Jodie Foster was mentioned as a lead way back when. The cast looks great! The production looks top notch. Fingers crossed!

The book was great. Don't know about Luke Evans... will wait and see.
