Is the J.J. Abrams/Alfonso Cuaron collaboration at NBC coming together? You'd better... "Believe" it. (Sorry).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the drama pilot has made some major additions to its cast, including Sienna Guillory ("Resident Evil: Apocalypse"), Jamie Chung ("Sucker Punch"), Johnny Sequoyah ("Wind Walkers") and Delroy Lindo ("Kidnapped").
"Believe" revolves around Bo, played by Sequoyah, a young girl who is poised to inherit incredible powers in seven years, and Tate ("Savages" Jake McLaughlin), the man who is sprung from prison to help protect her from those trying take advantage of her.
Veteran actor Lindo will play Winter, an alleged priest with a vested interest in Bo's well-being, who turns out to be far more than he claims.
Chung joins the cast as Channing, a strong, smart woman who works closely with Lindo's Winter, assisting Tate following his escape from prison. Guillory will portray Moore, a cool hit woman who has issues with her own mother.
The one hour drama is the brainchild of visionary feature director Cuaron ("Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban") and Mark Friedman, who will write the pilot to be produced under Abrams' Bad Robot.
This seems like a strong cast so far, with plenty of talent behind the camera to back them up. What do you think of this new project?
