Deadline reports that Sally Field has signed on to the project, which is currently filming in New York City. Directed by Cary Fukunaga, the series is based on the 2014 Norwegian series of the same name and centers on Hill as “a guy who lives a fantasy life in his dreams but in reality is locked up at an institution.” Stone plays another patient at the institution, while Field’s character is being kept under wraps. Deadline’s report speculates she might play the mother of Hill’s character.
