I am, unfortunately, not in this shot, but here’s the news:
Germany’s Tandem Communications and Ridley and Tony Scott‘s Scott Free have released the first cast photo from their upcoming miniseries Labyrinth. Tandem and Scott Free are the team behind the multi-Emmy nominated The Pillars of the Earth.
The grip-and-grin shot shows Oscar-winner John Hurt alongside executive producers Ridley Scott and Tandem’s Tim Halkin, together with Kate Mosse, author of the best-selling thriller on which the 4-hour miniseries is based. Mosse’s tale is an adventures story set in modern and medieval France which centres on two women’s search for the holy grail. Delivery is set for late summer 2012. Germany’s Sat.1, Channel Four in the U.K., France’s M6, Spain’s Quatro and ORF in Austria have pre-bought the show. NBC Universal Home Entertainment and Koch Media have certain U.S. home entertainment rights. So far, there is no U.S. broadcaster attached to the series.
