The HBO The New Pope star is in talks to lead a Showtime Hollywood satire that Waititi, fresh off his Oscar win for best adapted screenplay for JoJo Rabbit, is co-writing, producing and directing. Variety reports The Auteur will be "told from the point of view of an eccentric 'auteur' played by Law, is a satire on Hollywood." Waititi co-wrote The Auteur with Peter Warren and is expected to direct some episodes. Variety notes that it's unknown when filming would take place since both Law and Waititi have busy schedules this year. Law is about to film the third installment in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, while Waititi will begin work on Thor: Love and Thunder later this year.
