Miles Teller Joins Amazon’s Drama Series ‘TOO OLD TO DIE YOUNG’ From Nicolas Winding Refn
Miles Teller has joined Amazon Studios’ upcoming drama series TOO OLD TO DIE YOUNG from Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn and writer Ed Brubaker.
Teller will play Martin, a police officer entangled in the world of assassins. The series explores the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles by following killers’ existential journeys in becoming samurai.
Refn will direct all 10 episodes and will co-write with Brubaker, who will also executive produce. TOO OLD TO DIE YOUNG marks Refn’s first American TV project. Brubaker is known in the world of comics and most recently served as a supervising producer and writer on HBO’s Westworld.
Teller said of the announcement:
“I’m a huge fan of Nic’s work so the opportunity to work with him, and for a company like Amazon, with this type of material is very exciting.”
This also marks Teller’s first series regular role after starring in films Whiplash and War Dogs. He has two features coming up this year, Lionsgate’s Granite Mountain and Universal’s Steven Spielberg-produced Thank You For Your Service.
