Skeet Ulrich and Giancarlo Esposito, stars of The Boys, are collaborating on a six-part series called The Driver, a remake of the British drama series of the same name (via Deadline).
In the AMC series, Esposito plays the role of taxi driver Vince, while Ulrich plays Colin, an old acquaintance.
Vince agrees to chauffeur a Zimbabwean criminal named 'The Horse' (played by Zackary Momoh), who has a reputation for exploiting illegal immigrants in southern US ports.
Paula Malcomson and Bonnie Mbuli will direct the production of the program in New Orleans this month, as well as showrunner Theo Travers, who played Vince in the original version. Esposito will also executive produce the program alongside producers Danny Brocklehurst and Sunu Gonera.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, showrunner for Riverdale, has opened up about the CW's cancellation and what we can expect from Season 7.
"Honestly, I feel like... you know, we'll have seven seasons," he said of Digital Spy. "It's hard to believe," he said. "I think we all anticipated it, we all thought that seven would be it."
"When the call came, it certainly was bittersweet and there was a sense of sadness. But, I don't think anyone ever imagined a show based on the Archie comic book characters, that was dark and twisted, that would last for the same length as it did and resonate with an audience. So I feel good."
"I feel grateful that we have one more year to sort of wrap up the series the way we want to." After the season six conclusion, we've got a very big project to pursue.
The Driver will be available on AMC. Riverdale will air on The CW in the United States and will conclude with season 7. In the United Kingdom, you can stream The Boys seasons 1-3 on Amazon Prime Video.
