Collider is reporting that James Marsden (Westworld, X-Men) is in negotiations to play Stu Redman in the upcoming adaptation from CBS All Access. Played by Gary Sinise in the 1994 ABC miniseries, Stu is one of the first to be found immune to the superflu that decimates the world.
Reports are also claiming that Aquaman actress, Amber Heard, is being eyed as Nadine Cross, the young virginal school teacher who is tragically destined to be the Dark Man's bride.
Also in negotiations are Greg Kinnear as Glen Bateman, Whoopi Goldberg as Mother Abagail,Henry Zaga as Nick Andros and Odessa Young as Fran Goldsmith.
With casting underway, it appears as though this is really happening! Be on the lookout this morning for episode 6 of The Circle Opens where I go into a bit more depth about the casting choices, but I would love to hear what you guys think. Excitement? Disappointment? Who would you prefer to see in these roles, if anyone?
