Too Old to Die Young : the tv series of Nicolas Winding Refn would be very long
When one sees the career of Nicolas Winding Refn and his artistic environment, we would very much like to see what it looks like in the context of a tv series. And that falls well, that is exactly what he has done.
Too Old to Die Young, a title as cryptic and intriguing as Nicolas Winding Refn was in the habit of we provide. 10 months of filming, a casting interesting to base Miles Teller and Jena Malone, the first images that make you feel dizzy and announce something very special, everything is set up for the tv series or an event.
Normally, it will talk about a cop in Los Angeles in full mourning of his team-mate who ends up in the bottom of the city to explore the backgrounds of the mafia, the Yakuza, and the mexican cartels, even if there is no doubt that everything is going quickly from lollipop, as usual with this director.
And if one is particularly looking forward to the series, it is not yet known when precisely the network, Amazon will decide to broadcast it. And it is not yet known how. Because we had no precise idea of the format you chose until the composer Cliff Martinez is not directed at the microphone to Screendaily to tell us a bit more :
“For me, the big difference [compared to the other series] it is the endurance that it requires in what I see as a big film of 10 hours, or 16 hours in the case of Too Old to Die Young, since it will be 10 episodes of 90 minutes each.
I warned Nicholas that he had to prepare the coffee and get a good rest when he could. We are working on the series since more than a year and for me the challenge is not to do a burn out, just as we won’t be blasé or complacent about it, but to stay focused and engaged during all this time.”
10 episodes of 90 minutes, it is clearly ambitious and it will require, obviously, a confidence and a commitment to the public well above the lower production HBO or Netflix. But, if the bet is successful, we can expect to live a moment of extremely loud television. And we are willing to believe it. What remains is to wait for a release date now !
