So it would seem that Terrence Howard is having a moment… from his epic bout of emotional overkill on the Oscars, to a starring role on the hotly buzzed “Empire,” and now, going full weirdo in M. Night Shyamalan‘s “Wayward Pines.” A new trailer has arrived providing a further peek at the eerie new event series.
Also featuring Matt Dillon, Carla Gugino, Shannyn Sossamon, Reed Diamond, Tim Griffin, Juliette Lewis, Charlie Tahan, Melissa Leo, and Siobhan Fallon Hogan, the show follows an FBI agent who heads to a titular Pacific Northwestern town to investigate the disappearance of two fellow agents. He winds up stepping into a world that seems part “The Stepford Wives,” part “Twin Peaks,” and part “The Wicker Man.” So yeah, the fingerprints of the influences are all over this, but hell, I’m intrigued. And fyi, Shyamalan directed the pilot and produced the series.
“Wayward Pines” arrives on May 14th. Watch below. [Deadline]
