So much has changed for Emma Stone and Jonah Hill in the 11 years since "Superbad." She has an Oscar, he has a couple of Oscar nominations. He keeps going back and forth in weight. She keeps going back and forth dating Andrew Garfield.
But here we are in 2018, and Stone and Hill are together again for "Maniac." The Netflix dark comedy series is a remake of the 2014 Norwegian series. It's possible they won't be adapting it to the letter, since Netflix just shared this synopsis:
"Maniac is the story of two strangers who find themselves caught up in a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry."
Netflix shared first look photos from the series, which also stars Sally Field and Justin Theroux. Cary Fukunaga ("True Detective" Season 1) is directing all 10 episodes, in his first directing work since "Beasts of No Nation."
Check out the photos:
A few months ago, photos leaked from the taping of "Maniac," showing Emma Stone wearing a long platinum wig/extensions and looking very much like "The Lord of the Rings" elf, Legolas. (Orlando Bloom had some fun with that on social media.)
At the time, Deadline described "Maniac" as following a man who lives a fantasy life in his dreams but his reality is locked in an institution. Both Hill and Stone were said to play patients at the institution.
"Maniac" doesn't have a release date yet, but Netflix should be streaming it later this year.
