Frank Darabont has been moving along nicely with trying to get his newest show up and running. Recently, Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) signed on to reunite with Darabont. Now Frank is on the verge of adding another nice addition to his cast.
Reports indicate that Simon Pegg is in negotiations to join the project. Darabont and company are being pretty secretive about what role Pegg will play. However, rumors indicate that his appearance may just be a special guest role in the pilot.
Darabont’s fast-paced thriller is based on a book by the same name. The period piece is set to focus on the war between the LAPD and mobsters during the 40s and 50s.
