Cary Fukunaga Developing Mental Institution Dark Comedy Starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill

(via Deadline)

So, a dark comedy is tad lighter in tone for Fukunaga, right?

Though it has yet to find a home, the man behind Beasts of No Nation and season 1 of True Detective, Cary Fukunaga is making his way into the world of comedy with a potential new series, Maniac

It shouldn’t come as a surprise with Fukunaga at the helm that the project revolves around the fantasies of a man committed to a mental institution. 

Emma Stone and Jonah Hill are almost set to star, which makes us think it won’t be long before Maniac is on its way to a series order.
