Nine Perfect Strangers: Michael Shannon Joins Hulu Limited Series

It's that time again where we finally have a piece of news that isn't about something getting delayed by the Covid-19 crisis. While everything else is slowly starting to reopen, studios are developing and looking into whatever they can make when things get back to normal again. Yep, these stories will keep happening as the world tries to return to normal. This time, Michael Shannon has signed on for Hulu's upcoming adaptation of Nine Perfect Strangers.

Based on the new novel from Big Little Lie's author Liane Moriarity, Nine Perfect Strangers is set at a remote health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and internal transformation. Nine stressed out strangers head to this resort and are not ready for what their director of the resort will do to them. Michael Shannon will play Napoleon, a grieving father looking for healing. He will join the growing cast for this miniseries, a cast that includes Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy.

The series will be produced by Nicole Kidman's production company, Blossom Films. After Big Little Lies, this will be the second time a Moriarity book has been adapted to the small screen. Nine Perfect Strangers has a tentative 2021 release date but filming is set to begin this month in Australia. As big Michael Shannon fans, we are looking forward to this show.
