The follow-up to The Young Pope, Paolo Sorrentino’s The New Pope, has tapped Sharon Stone and Marilyn Manson to guest star, HBO has announced.
The upcoming Sorrentino-helmed series is a sequel to 2016’s The Young Pope. While not much is known about the plot or the characters, it is known that Jude Law will reprise his role as the leader of the Catholic Church. It is also known that he will be joined by John Malkovich.
Back in January, HBO released a first-look image of Malkovich and Law, both in similar papal vestments, so it’s fair to assume that the series will feature two popes, much like the recent real-life situation that resulted in there being two living popes for the first time in centuries.
Other returning cast members include Cecile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, and Silvio Orlando.
No premiere date has been set yet.
