Gary Oldman Developing The Diabolic
He's producing a TV horror series

Gary-Oldman-Developing-The-Diabolic

He’s played a few terrifying people in his time, but it appears Gary Oldman’s latest dip into the dark side will have him more focused behind the scenes, acting as a producer on freshly developing horror series called The Diabolic.

The planned serialized TV drama comes from the brain of writer Daniel Kay, who crafted horror thriller Timber Falls back in 2007. He wrote a spec script that follows a damaged but brilliant exorcist falling in love with the mother of his latest subject, a young son possessed by an ancient entity.

Our nasty, demonic child-dweller has evil intentions that threaten not only the boy and his family, but also the fate of mankind. Just once we’d like to meet a demonic entity whose big plan is to meet Harrison Ford and get his autograph, and see the wacky misunderstandings that ensue.

Oldman, working with manager Douglas Urbanski via their Flying Studio company, has partnered up with Entertainment One Television to shop the eventual show around to channels worldwide. Will he crop up in the series itself? That remains to be seen, and let's not forget that his film career keep him busy. He’ll next be seen in Child 44 with Tom Hardy and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, which hits our screens on July 17.
