New Morgan(e) and Karadec

The remake takes its roots HPI And follows Morgan (without the ‘e’ at the end), played here by Kaitlin Olson (Philadelphia), a woman with an exceptional IQ and mother of three who forms a team both incredible and unstoppable with Commander Karadetz, played by Danielle Sunjata (Grey’s Anatomy , The Devil Wears Prada, Echo).

We dreamed of Jessica Chastain and Steve Carell– he started laughing. “I don’t know these actors, I haven’t seen them in other movies or series, so I don’t really have an opinion. But of course, we are very honored that the Americans are adapting our series. “

He continued: “I was wondering who was going to write this American adaptation, and we’re very flattered anyway, because he’s one of the writers of Lost. I wonder what that will do.

“A little too beautiful”

I believe that overall, there is a bit of an equalization because they don’t allow themselves what we allow ourselves. I think the art direction has added value because they’ve pulled out all the stops financially, so image-wise it’s updated.”

Rimmel should come in a little bit, otherwise we are somewhere else, we are in Hollywood. But once again I couldn’t see anything.”

But Audrey Fleur He still admitted that he was happy to see the series adapted around the world, although only one version would interest him: “I think if any country can make a great version, it would be English. They could have done something crazier. I would be interested there.“Word to the wise, hello!
