Love the books. I didn't even know this was licensed, let alone in production! Very cool. Thanks for posting.

I didn't know about this either (no surprise, me being me).

It makes sense to make a film of this novel -- a darker Murdoch Mysteries, a more enclosed Ripper Street. These sorts of dark shows from this era are currently popular on screen, for sure, and even more popular in fiction than they were when The Alienist was published.  it's still the best written book Carr has presented.  His latest novel is a fairly ridiculous and overlong mess.

Yeah, the last novel I read of his was Killing Time. Pretty meh. I wish he'd get back to his Alienist characters. Good stuff.

Dakota Fanning making a serious transition from child star to credible adult actor. And thankfully Twilight didn't ruin her adult career.

that's a great cast. Tend to think of falling skies when TNT is mentioned

Filming in Budapest? Hmmmm, strange. I guess I can see how small portions of that city might resemble NYC at the start of the century. Maybe... If you squint..

The Alienist was good and The Angel of Darkness was even better ...

Surrender, New York (2016) s a pile of steaming overlong, pretentious, overstuffed, implausible (because of how he chose to present his plot of the intersections among politics, policing and child sex trafficking).  It's like he took lessons in author embarrassing himself with self-identification of dream protag from Greg Iles.

I follow Luke Evans on IG, and the behind the scenes photos and stuff look very interesting. I had no idea it was based on a series of books. Silly me, seeing as pretty much everything is.
