‘Trust’: Donald Sutherland To Play J. Paul Getty In FX Anthology Series
Donald Sutherland is in the money. FX said today that the Emmy winner is set to play billionaire oil man J. Paul Getty in the first installment of its anthology series Trust, executive produced by the Slumdog Millionaire trio Danny Boyle, Simon Beaufoy and Christian Colson.
Written by Beaufoy and directed by Boyle, Season 1 takes place in 1973, when the young heir John Paul Getty III is kidnapped in Rome and his mafia captors are banking on a multimillion-dollar ransom from his wealthy family. Sutherland plays the architect of the family fortune — one of the 20th century’s most iconic and enigmatic figures and at the time perhaps the richest man in the world. He’s a visionary who dreamed of a dynasty but was baffled by family.
Production on the 10-episode Trust begins in June in London for a January 2018 premiere. The first installment will be produced by FX Productions, Cloud Eight Films, Decibel Films and Snicket Films Limited.
