The first promos for Fox’s upcoming adaptation of Vertigo Comic’s Lucifer series have made their way online introducing a delightfully charming devil.
English actor Tom Ellis stars as Lucifer Morningstar, the bored and unhappy Lord of Hell who resigns his throne and decides to make Los Angeles his new kingdom, where he decides to start punishing criminals for kicks.
Fox has already confirmed that the pilot has been taken to series, with noted Hollywood director Len Wisemen (Underworld, Live Free Or Die Hard) directing the pilot, and who also looks to be overseeing the tone of the first season. While the concept is intriguing it’s definitely Ellis as Lucifer who is the star, and from the first look trailer and featurette he is a definite scene stealer as the debonair, playboy ruler of Hell who decides to have a bit of fun at the expense of us mortals.
In 2016 get ready for a good bit of hell, along with one very debonair, and rambunctious devil.
