Netflix has announced the cast for the sci-fi drama Into the Night, the worldwide streamer’s first Original series from Belgium.
Filming has started on Into the Night, which features an international cast from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia, and Turkey.
The actors include Pauline Etienne (Public Enemy, The Bureau), Laurent Capelluto (Black Spot, The Returned), Nabil Mallat (Professor T, Cordon), Stéfano Cassetti (Spiral, Thou Shalt Not Kill), Jan Bijvoet (Peaky Blinders, The Tunnel), Astrid Whettnall (Baron noir, The Missing), Vincent Londez (Public Enemy, Missions), Regina Bikkinina (Glukhar 2. Prodolzhenie), Alba Gaïa Bellugi (The Bureau, Three Times Manon), Babetida Sadjo (Esprits de famille), Mehmet Kurtulus (The Protector, Cenk Batu), and Ksawery Szlenkier (Jack Strong).
Into the Night begins with a sudden solar event, as the sun inexplicably starts killing everything in its path. The show centers on the lucky passengers and crew of an overnight flight out of Brussels, as they attempt to fly west — into the safety of the dark night. The plane’s manifest is multinational and multilingual, with passengers rich and poor, young and old, civilian and military. The seemingly ordinary travelers share but one thing: a desire to survive the sun — and each other — by any means necessary.
The cast also includes Yassine Fadel (The Team), Laura Sepul (Public Enemy), and Nicolas Aleshine.
A production of Entre Chien et Loup (Public Enemy), the series is created and written by showrunner and executive producer Jason George (The Protector, Narcos) and directed by the Belgian duo of Inti Calfat and Dirk Verheye (Over Water). Other executive producers include Oscar® nominee Tomek Baginski (The Cathedral) and Jacek Dukaj.
Into the Night will launch globally on Netflix in 2020. (You can add it to your queue now.)
