Variety.com – Apple is nearing an order for the limited series “In with the Devil,” with Taron Egerton and Paul Walter Hauser onboard to star, Variety has learned.
The six-episode series would be based on the 2010 novel “In With The Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer, and A Dangerous Bargain for Redemption” by James Keene and Hillel Levin. The book tells the story of Keene’s real life when he was sentenced to prison but offered his freedom in exchange for coaxing a confession out of a fellow inmate, a suspected serial killer.
The series is described as being told through the lens of an intimate relationship between two prisoners, exploring the lengths that people will go to in order to seek redemption, if true absolution is ever really possible, and if so, at what costs. Egerton would star in the Keene role.

Comicbook.com – Kingsman star Taron Egerton expects production on the trilogy closer to get underway in 2020.
“So you have the King’s Man coming, which is a prequel set around 100 years ago, and I’m not in it. But I do know some stuff about it, and it’s really, really exciting, it’s got an amazing cast and it’s an amazing story,” Egerton said at ACE Comic Con Seattle. “And then I think — I think, think, think — we’ll be doing the final chapter in the Harry and Eggsy trilogy next year, I think, yeah.”
The King’s Man, directed by The Secret Service and The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn, extends the franchise when it releases February 2020. Vaughn previously said he hopes to enter into production by late 2019 or early 2020.
“We’ve got to finish off the Eggsy and Harry relationship,” Vaughn told Digital Spy of the mentor relationship between veteran spy Harry Hart (Colin Firth) and Egerton’s Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin.
“The final chapter of their relationship needs to be told, which we’ve got ready to do, and I’m hoping to shoot that later this year or the beginning of next year.”
Egerton’s return to the action-packed franchise is a welcome one, as the star felt emotionally drained from portraying Sir Elton John in Vaughn-produced fantasy musical biopic Rocketman.
