What do Jordan Peele and Joss Whedon have in common? Both prolific producers have ambitious HBO series that will soon be going into production.

TheWrap spoke with Casey Bloys, the pay-tv channel’s programming chief, on Friday about the status of the “Us” director’s “Lovecraft Country” and the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator’s “The Nevers,” two projects eagerly anticipated by fans of the Peeleverse and Whedonverse, respectively.

And lucky for both camps, those series are about to start filming.

Michael K Williams Joins Jordan Peele’s ‘Lovecraft Country’ Series at HBO
Jordan Peele’s upcoming HBO drama “Lovecraft Country” has added “The Wire” alum Michael K. Williams to its cast.

Williams will play Montrose Freeman, father to Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors). Described as “hard headed and secretive,” the character has always believed you can’t live in a fantasy world, which is why he despises his son’s pulp novels. Most of the books on his shelf are nonfiction, history, and political theory.

According to HBO, “The guys at the local bar call him a communist, but today we’d just call him conscious.”

Mandy Moore Joins Underwater Thriller '47 Meters Down'

Mandy Moore Joins Underwater Thriller '47 Meters Down'
Actress Mandy Moore has finalized a deal to star in Dimension Films' underwater thriller 47 Meters Down. Dimension acquired 47 Meters Down back in April 2014, but we haven't heard about any movement on the project until now. The plot has been compared to the sci-fi thriller Gravity, only in an underwater environment.

The story revolves around two sisters, Kate (Mandy Moore) and Lisa, who become trapped at the bottom of the ocean when a diving expedition to observe sharks goes horribly wrong. When the cable attaching the observation cage to the boat breaks and the cage sinks to the bottom of the ocean, the sisters must figure out a way to get back to safety battling injuries, lack of oxygen, and, worst of all, blood thirsty, great white sharks. No other cast members have been confirmed at this time.

British filmmaker Johannes Roberts (Storage 24) is directing from his own screenplay.
