Naomi Watts is making a return to the psychological thriller genre.
Fifteen years after her breakout role in David Lynch’s phenomenal Mulholland Drive, Watts has been tapped to star in the Netflix series Gypsy, set to premiere with a 10-episode first season in 2017. Sam Taylor-Johnson, director of Fifty Shades of Grey, is going to direct the first two episodes of the show, so you can probably expect that some messed-up things will happen.
Watts will play the role of Jean Holloway, a therapist who gets way too involved in the lives of her patients (always a recipe for disaster, in both television and the real world). The Australian actress, who recently starred in Jean-Marc Vallée’s Demolition opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, will also serve as an executive producer for the series.
