Nicolas Winding Refn’s Amazon series, Too Old to Die Young, has announced its leading man.
US actor Miles Teller is set to star in the crime-thriller series. Teller is known for his role in the acclaimed Whiplash, as well as Fantastic Four and the Divergent series.
Too Old to Die Young follows Martin (Teller), a police officer entangled in the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles. Martin is a grieving police officer who, along with the man who shot his partner, finds himself in an underworld filled with working-class hit men, Yakuza soldiers, cartel assassins sent from Mexico, Russian mafia captains and gangs of teenage killers.
Refn has written the script with Ed Brubaker, the comic author behind Captain America. Refn will also direct the entire series.
