According to Deadline, Noah is set to co-star as Temple Franklin, Benjamin Franklin’s grandson (Michael Douglas), in an 8-episode mini-series for Apple. The filming is underway in Paris.
Apple’s Untitled Benjamin Franklin series starring Michael Douglas is underway in Versailles, just outside Paris, we can reveal.
Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place) is set to star alongside Douglas (as Benjamin Franklin) in the role of Temple Franklin, the diplomat and secretary to his grandfather Benjamin.
The eight-episode limited drama explores the story of one of the greatest gambles of Benjamin Franklin’s career. At age 70, without any diplomatic training, Franklin convinced France – an absolute monarchy – to underwrite America’s experiment in democracy. By virtue of his fame, charisma, and ingenuity, Franklin outmaneuvered British spies, French informers, and hostile colleagues, all while engineering the Franco-American alliance of 1778 and the final peace with England of l783. The eight-year French mission stands as Franklin’s most vital service to his country, without which America would not have won the Revolution.
