It’s a vast place, cattle land where from moment to moment a mysterious – and giant – black hole appears. You can’t see anything below, it’s covered in fog and it’s as dark as the events that happen in the wilderness of Wyoming, United States.
It starts like this outer rangean eight-episode series that marks the serial production return – after 20 years – of Josh Brolin, who has had notable and memorable roles in cinema: Thanos in AvengersLlewelyn in There is no country for old men (No place for cowardsin Spanish), young client K in Min In Black 3Journey in Sand dunes Or the one that earned him an Oscar nomination for the movie leben.
Brolin, who also produces the series, plays Royal Abbott, a farmer who fights for his land and for his family. The story was created by Brian Watkins and Brolin discovered it thanks to a message he sent him: “I felt like Brian’s message was very sincere, and a little different than what I’m used to,” he said in a conversation with the Colombian.
The letter piqued his interest so much that he wanted to read the script, and after that first reading, he had in mind all those wonderful stories he had grown up with, from those written by screenwriter and writer Sam Shepherd (whom he said he was very close to). Favorite science fiction authors in their youth such as Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov.
“I loved that contrast, the element of surprise. I grew up on a farm, here I don’t have to be around these people all the time and that’s cool. I can go to weird things and then come back and put all these marks on the way I see my own reality, and that’s so much fun, And a great way to color things differently, it suddenly changed my point of view.”
From Otter Ring – which premiered its first two episodes on April 15 in Prime Video – highlights the stellar cast of actors who accompany it: Tom Pelphrey, Lewis Pullman, Imogen Poots and Lilli Taylor and remembers with them the chemistry that also lived in There is no country for old men With Javier Bardem and Tommy Lee Jones, “there’s unity in the staff and great skills and sensitivity, and that’s important from a professional standpoint,” he said.
In addition to The Mysterious Hole, the series, which will feature two new chapters every Friday, will bring disappearances, unexpected deaths, secrets from the past, and good humor with paradoxical and supernatural mysteries. “I think they would like it; well, I don’t know, but I think so.”
