HBO and filmmaker Joss Whedon have ended their professional partnership and he is no longer involved in the new HBO Max streaming series, titled “ The Nevers. ” The information has been confirmed by the broadcaster itself, through an official statement.
At the time, HBO pointed out that “we broke up with Joss Whedon. We remain excited about the future of The Nevers and look forward to its debut in the summer of 2021 ″.
The move comes amid a controversy over the director’s name, given the many accusations of abusive behavior during the ‘Justice League’ remakes.
Actor Ray Fisher has publicly and vehemently accused Whedon of his inappropriate conduct, which allegedly resulted in a toxic and dangerous work environment. The director and Warner Bros. disagreed with some of the accusations made by Fisher.
It should be remembered that WB and HBO belong to the conglomerate WarnerMedia.
In addition to Laura Donnelly, who was hired as the production’s protagonist, the cast will also include Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Ann Skelly, Ben Chaplin, Pip Torrens, Zachary Momoh, Amy Manson, Nick Frost, Rochelle Neil, Eleanos Tomlinson and Denis O’Hare.
The drama was commissioned in July 2018 and is described as a sci-fi epic that revolves around a gang of Victorian women who discover they have special skills, fiery enemies, and a mission that can change the world that ‘they know.
Donnelly will be Amalia True, the most impulsive and “unstoppable” heroine of her time, seen as an imminent threat to Victorian society. Amalia would die to uphold her precepts – and also to have a drink.
The actress is best known for her role as Jenny Fraser in Starz’s popular “Outlander” series. His filmography also includes shows like “The Fall” and “Merlin”. Donnelly will also appear in the “Tolkien” biography, alongside Nicholas Hoult.
There is still no scheduled release date for “The Nevers”.
