The Man Who Fell to Earth - Chiwetel Ejiofor Cast As Lead
I really thought they had finished filming this already even though I had heard zero information about it.
This is moving from Paramount+ streaming to Showtime linear. It will be shown sometime in 2022 http://thefutoncritic.com/news/2021/03/17/showtime-to-exclusively-air-the-man-who-fell-to-earth-starring-oscar-nominee-chiwetel-ejiofor-937014/20210317showtime01/
I had some intention of watching this when it was going to Paramount+, but since I don't have Showtime, I guess I'll have to wait for the DVD set
