Casting

 

Utopiahas been in the works for some time now. Around this time last year, the show was ordered for 9 episodes. According to various production reports, “Utopia” was originally to be produced with HBO and David Fincher was set to direct. Seems that deal fell through, but the show is back on for Amazon. “Utopia” is adapted for the US by Gillian Flynn from the original show which aired in the UK.  Gillian Flynn wrote the book novel “Gone Girl” and also wrote the screenplay for the movie adaptation. Another one of Flynn’s books is being made into a TV show.  Her novel “Sharp Objects” is being adapted for HBO and will star Amy Adams.

 

 

Utopia” centers on a group of people who meet online and find themselves involved in a conspiracy and followed by some kind of an underground, government organization that is wrapped in secrecy. The group finds a comic that changes their lives as they come to suspect that the stories in the book may be more fact than fiction.
