Michael Mando, known for, among other things Better Call Saul (2015–2022), would star in the eight-part series Sinking Spring (2023), directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ridley Scott, but that doesn’t seem to be happening. According to sources, Scott has kicked the actor from the series after a conflict with a co-star. The director doesn’t waste any time and immediately found a replacement, Wagner Moura, known for Narcos (2015–2017).
No more saving
Sinking Spring is being made for Apple TV+. It will be Moura’s second time working on a series for this streaming service. He was previously seen in Shining Girls (2022). Moura replaces Mando due to an incident on set. Producers would have tried to remedy the situation, but to no avail. Apple declined to comment on the situation.
Sinking Spring is about a group of ex-criminals from Philly who pose as Drug Enforcement Administration agents to rob a house in the countryside. What started as just an idea grows into a venture that puts their lives on the line after they mistakenly reveal one of the largest corridors on the East Coast. In addition to Moura, Brian Tyree Henry will also appear in the series.
‘Sinking Spring’ follows old friends and delinquents who pose as DEA agents to rob a house in the countryside, but end up unintentionally uncovering and unraveling the largest hidden narcotics corridor on the East Coast.
The exact release date of Sinking Spring has not yet been announced, but the series is expected to be released in 2023.
