HBO has unveiled a trailer for The New Pope, a drama series starring Jude Law and John Malkovich. Their characters compete for the leadership of the Catholic Church.
Pope Lenny Belardo (Jude Law) fell into a coma, so the cardinals choose a new pontiff – John Paul III. He is already ready to lead the Catholic Church in the necessary direction, as the cardinals see it. However, Lenny comes to his senses.
“New Pope” is a sequel to the series “Young Pope”. The director of both television projects was the Italian Paolo Sorrentino, winner of prestigious film awards, including an Oscar. HBO will air eight episodes of its new series.
Together with Jude Law, other actors from Young Pope also joined his new project: Silvio Orlando, Javier Camara, Cecile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, Maurizio Lombardi. They were joined by two guest stars: Sharon Stone and Marilyn Manson.
The premiere of “The New Pope” is scheduled for January 10 of the coming year.
