“Narcos” star Wagner Moura has been tapped as a lead opposite Elisabeth Moss in “Shining Girls,” Apple TV+’s upcoming metaphysical thriller series based on Lauren Beukes’ 2013 best-selling novel, reports Deadline. It centers on a Depression-era drifter who must murder the “shining girls” in order to continue his travels.
Moura will play Dan, a veteran journalist breaking the widening story of a copycat attack. Moss plays a Chicago reporter who survived a brutal assault only to find her reality shifting as she hunts down her attacker.
Hailing from MRC Television, the series will be adapted for television and executive produced by Silka Luisa, who will also serve as showrunner. In addition to starring, Moss will executive produce through Love & Squalor Pictures alongside Lindsey McManus. Leonardo DiCaprio will executive produce through Appian Way alongside Jennifer Davidson. Author Lauren Beukes and Alan Page Arriaga will also serve as executive producers on the project.
