Nicolas Winding Refn has teamed up with acclaimed graphic novelist Ed Brubaker for a new Amazon series about the criminal underworld in Los Angeles

Too Old To Die Young explores the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles. The series is described as being in a similar vein to Refn’s Pusher trilogy, which looked at Danish criminals caught up in the drug trade. It explores various characters’ existential journeys from being killers to becoming samurai’s in the city of angels.

Another synopsis says that it follows a grieving police officer who, along with the man who shot his partner, finds himself in an underworld filled with working-class hit men, Yakuza soldiers, cartel assassins sent from Mexico, Russian mafia captains and gangs of teen killers.

The 10 episode series is due out next year and stars Miles Teller, Billy Baldwin, Jena Malone, John Hawkes, Cristina Rodlo, Augusto Aguilera, Nell Tiger Free, Babs Olusanmokun and Callie Hernandez.

Refn co-wrote the series with Brubaker, who will be an executive producer. Refn will also direct the series and produce it.

Refn has worked with Amazon before as the company previously released The Neon Demon, his recent horror film with Elle Fanning. His other credits include Only God Forgives, Drive and Valhalla Rising. Too Old To Die Young marks the first American TV series for the Danish filmmaker.

Brubaker is a comic writer and cartoonist, who most recently took a turn into television, working as a supervising producer and writer on HBO’s Westworld. He started in the crime genre of comics with Fatale, Sleeper, Criminal and more, then moved to superhero comics, writing for Batman, Daredevil, Captain America, Catwoman and more.
