Jude Law is stepping into brand new territory with Paul Sorrentino’s upcoming HBO series The Young Pope, which sees the former playing a controversial pope coming into power.
The series follows a newly elected pope, Pius XIII’s, who was raised by nuns after being abandoned as a child. Strictly conservative, he rejects advice from those around him in favour of the woman who was like a mother to him, Sister Mary (Diane Keaton).
The brand new trailer promises tense moments and Law at his best, not to mention a look at how power can be wielded in all the wrong ways.
The Young Pope airs Sunday 15 January at 9pm on HBO.
