The Succession Emmy winner said he also directs a series on the Boeing 737 Max crashes at Amazon.
Jeremy Strong has his next two projects lined up, as he revealed in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
The Succession Emmy-winner and Armageddon Time star will direct two new limited series about real-world plane crashes. Through Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner’s Plan B Entertainment, Strong said he will star in an Amazon Prime Video series about the causes of the Boeing 737 Max crash that killed 346 people. Strong will play a composite character engineer inspired by the real Boeing team.
Strong also says he is collaborating with BAFTA winner Tobias Lindholm (“The Good Nurse,” “Another Round”) for a “Chernobyl”-esque limited series about the cancer and the enduring impact on 9/11 first responders. Lindholm will write and direct the series.
Strong previously starred in Plan B Entertainment’s other films, Selma and The Big Short. According to Gardner, co-president of Plan B, Strong checks in daily.
“A lot of them are anticipating what happens when ‘Succession’ is over,” Gardner told The Hollywood Reporter. “We both envision a grand constellation of joint efforts.”
The hit HBO series Succession recently won Outstanding Drama Series at the 2022 Emmys and wrapped up production on season 4. However, writer-executive producer Georgia Pritchett previously revealed to the Times in 2021 that she believes “this Would be a maximum of five seasons”.
Reflecting on his career after “succession,” Strong told THR that two years ago he said to his agent, “There are two things I’m always looking for, and that’s the possibility of transformation and the possibility of risk.”
Strong added, “I think everything else feels a bit like a rabbit trail.”
The ‘Trial of the Chicago 7’ actor caused a stir in 2021 for sharing his method acting techniques on a now infamous New York profile. Strong told IndieWire that after being a part of Success for more than six years, his character Kendall Roy became “indistinguishable from him” at times.
“This entanglement is a really important and vital place where elements of you and elements of your work merge. It’s impossible to tell where one ends and where the other begins,” Strong explained. “It’s something I’ll probably carry around with me from now on. The show has become somewhat iconic in a way. [Though] Kendall is just another role for me to play.”
