Emma Stone Jonah Hill Maniac

Emma Stone, Jonah Hill Comedy Maniac Snags Netflix Series Order

That Emma Stone-Jonah Hill comedy series wasn’t out in the marketplace for long.

Netflix is close to placing a 10-episode order for Maniac, an adaptation of the Norwegian dark comedy series starring Stone and Hill, Deadline reports.

Having premiered last year in Norway, Maniac follow a young man (Hill) who’s living a fantastic life, but only in a fantasy world — all while he’s actually locked up inside a mental institution.  Stone plays a fellow patient.

True Detective‘s Cary Fukunaga is in talks to possibly direct every episode, as well as serve as an executive producer alongside Stone and Hill.

An Academy Award nominee for Birdman, Stone’s previous small screen credits include Tim Minear’s Drive and episodes of Medium, Malcom in the Middle and 30 Rock. Hill, a two-time Oscar nominee, appeared on the Oxygen sitcom Campus Ladies and, like Stone, has hosted the occasional Saturday Night Live.

    Presumably this decision was made despite the recent SNL appearance by Hill

    Netflix I guess you’re at a point now where you can afford to waste money. This guy is not funny, cute or can act? WTH!

    The last Jonah Hill interview I read was in Rolling Stone. He came off as such a d-bag! My opinion of him changed and I went from being a former fan to being completely repulsed.

    Yes, I was hoping for Netflix. Drew Barrymore (Santa Clarita Diet) and Emma Stone (Maniac), Netflix it’s on fire!

    Does anyone find Hill entertaining?

    And they were a couple at the end of Superbad!

    Has Fukunaga ever done anything bad? His season of True Detective will probably never be surpassed. And Beasts of No Nation? He wrote it, directed it, and filmed it. He was robbed at the award shows.

    But, nevertheless, until someone can point out a failure of his, I have to believe this will be a must watched series.
