Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, The Neon Demon) has been hard at work on the Los Angeles-based crime thriller series, Too Old to Die Young. For his latest collaboration with Amazon Prime Video, Refn directed, produced, and co-wrote the series with Ed Brubaker (Captain America: The Winter Soldier comics); Brubaker is also on board as a producer. Today, fans everywhere can get a look at the project thanks to the blood-soaked, neon-lit, and highly dramatic first trailer.
Too Old to Die Young explores the criminal underbelly of LA through various characters’ existential journeys, described as going from “killers to becoming samurais in the city of angels.” We still don’t really know what that means just from the logline, but the trailer goes a long way towards selling us Refn’s latest look at complicated characters caught up in the criminal underworld. The 10-episode series comes to Amazon Prime starting June 14th.
Check out the trailer for Refn’s Too Old to Die Young below:
As you might have seen in the trailer, Too Old to Die Young stars Miles Teller, John Hawkes, Jena Malone, William Baldwin, Carlotta Montanari, Celestino Cornielle, Babs Olusanmokun, and more. We’ll be sure to share more details with you once we get them, but until then, keep your eyes peeled!
