Last summer, there was no shortage of excitement when news broke in the Australian trades that Jane Campion‘s outstanding “Top Of The Lake” was not only getting a second season with the director co-helming again, but that Elisabeth Moss would be returning too. However, the actress dampened some of the buzz when, in an interview with us, she was more reserved about the possibility of new episodes.
“For the past couple of years, [Jane Campion]’s been writing and sending me things and I’ve been looking and everything’s looking really great and I’m loving it. It’s not something that I can officially confirm, but it’s definitely a work in progress,” Moss said. And since then, there hasn’t been any word. But good news arrives today.
Currently at the Sundance Film Festival promoting “The Free World” (our review), Moss sat down with Vanity Fair, and when asked what was next, she revealed she’s shooting “Mad To Be Normal” with David Tennant, and after that, she confirmed for the first time she’ll definitely be doing “Top Of The Lake.” Hell, yeah.
As for the plot, there are no exact details, but the Australian trades did say it would shot and set in Sydney and involve an investigation in Harbour City, Hong Kong. As for that talk last fall of Nicole Kidman also joining, it seems that’s going to happen as well.
So, new “Top Of The Lake” for 2017? That would about right, and we can’t wait.
