First look images for the upcoming Dead Ringers limited series have been releasedbased on David Cronenberg’s 1988 psychological thriller.
Rachel Weisz plays the dual lead of Elliott and Beverly Mantle, “twins who share everything: drugs, lovers, and an uncompromising willingness to do whatever it takes—including pushing the boundaries of medical ethics—in an effort to challenge outdated practices and bring the care of women’s health at the forefront,” according to Amazon’s press release.
Cronenberg’s original stars Jeremy Irons in the dual role of identical twin gynecologists Elliott and Beverly Mantle, who specialize in treating fertility problems. It ranks high on many lists of the best horror movies of all time.
The six-episode series also stars Brittne Oldford (The Umbrella Academy, American Horror Story: Asylum) as Genevieve, Poppy Liu (Hacks, Better Call Saul) as Greta, Michael Chernus (Severance, Orange is the New Black) as Tom, Jennifer Elle (Zero Dark Thirty, Saint Maud) as Rebecca and Emily Mead (The Deuce, The Leftovers) as Susan.
Alice Birch (Normal People, Succession, The Wonder) is the showrunner and Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene, The Nest, The Iron Claw) is directing half the episodes.
All six episodes of Dead Ringers are scheduled to premiere on April 21 on Prime Video.
