Hey guys, Jana here,

The HBO/Sky Television co-production, under the banners of Sister Pictures and The Mighty Mint, of a five-part miniseries ‘Chernobyl‘ will begin filming next year in Lithuania. It will star Jared Harris and he has been cast as Valery Legasov, the Soviet scientist ordered by the Kremlin to investigate the accident. The project will be directed by Johan Renck (‘Breaking Bad‘) and written by Craig Mazin (‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War‘).

 The announcement was made today by Kary Antholis, the president of HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming. “From the moment Craig Mazin pitched us the story, we were convinced that this all-too-true tale of horror and redemption needed to be told,” said Antholis. “It will engage – and enrage – our viewers, as well as audiences around the world.”

Chernobyl‘ will tell the story of true events that resulted in one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history. The miniseries will tell the stories of the brave individuals who sacrificed to save Europe from obliteration.
