Actor David Tennant is likely to be experiencing a severe case of Déjà Vu this coming January.
Today FOX announced he has been cast in their remake of the surprise ITV hit Broadchurch in a ‘Similar Role’. The remake was announced in August and is expected to begin in the 2014/2015 season.
The series will most likely be a limited run of around 12 episodes as it is part of Fox’s new “Event Series” initiative. The same initiative responsible for bringing 24 back to our screens next year for 12 episodes.
Broadchurch creator and Doctor Who writer Chris Chibnall will be acting as executive producer on the series and is currently confirmed to be writing the first episode. But we would be willing to bet he will be writing more than that.
You can listen to Chris and I discuss Broadchurch on a early episode of the Podcast here.
Excited about this news? Will this casting make the remake feel redundant? And most importantly, will David Tennant be using his American accent again? Feel free to sound-off in the comments below.
