New project: Miniseries A Young Doctor's Notebook

Variety is reporting that Daniel has been confirmed for the UK comedy drama miniseries A Young Doctor's Notebook a four-part skein inspired by a collection of short stories by Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov set during the Russian Revolution. (the rumour was already going around for some time)

According to their article, Jon Hamm will take the role of the older doctor, Daniel will play the younger version. The show has been green lit by Sky Arts, owned by UK pay box BSkyB, and will be distributed internationally by BBC Worldwide. The producer is Big Talk Productions in association with Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt's Point West Pictures.

Daniel added:

"I have been an obsessive Bulgakov reader for a couple of years now so when the opportunity to become involved in this project came up, I could barely contain my excitement.
"The book is funny, grotesque and heartfelt in equal measure and I look forward to working with a great group of people to help bring it to life."

If more news comes available, you will hear it here.

-- Besides that, I also heard that Daniel would be interested "to get involved" a 3D version of Pinocchio. Daniel would have approached producer Guillermo del Toro. No confirmation on that yet, also more news about that when I have it.
