An acting nerd, a theater geek, a comics junkie, and a hashtag legend- all these terms are apt for actor Dane DeHaan. Being one of the most sought after actor in contemporary Hollywood, Dane has earned his stature. From high school days in his native Pennsylvania, the acting course at the University of North Carolina and a frequent candidate in the best-dressed lists in men’s magazines as a fashion icon, his stardom has been growing alongside him.
He reaped goodwill and success alike from the box office with ambitious projects like ‘A Cure for Wellness,’ ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,’ and ‘Tulip Fever.’ Moviegoers of the 21st century easily connect with Dane’s characters, a majority of whom are troubled adolescents. But, after ‘Chronicle’ and ‘The Place Beyond the Pines,’ Dane chose to act in the grown-up, leading roles and projects like big-budget sci-fi movies.
His film debut, the 2010 American-Filipino drama ‘Amigo’ is a long way back in the past and Dane is the present tense of Hollywood. The young actor has both the gifts, an ever-updating skill set, and inherent charisma. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Dane DeHaan movie or television show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Dane DeHaan films and television shows scheduled to release in the near future. We can only hope that the new Dane DeHaan performances would be as good as his recent ones.
3. ZeroZeroZero (TBA)
‘ZeroZeroZero’ is among one of the most anticipated crime-drama series directed by ‘Gomorrah‘ director Stefano Sollima. The series is based on a book by Roberto Saviano and chronicles the global cocaine trafficking network. The 8-episode series is supposed to have been shot in English, Spanish, Italian, French, Wolof, and Arabic for eight months in six countries.
A report reveals that the crew will follow a container ship from Mexico to Calabria, narrating how the international cocaine trafficking network operates. The report also adds that the makers will explore how this trafficking affects the market, the world economy, and human lives. The series is supposed to air on Canal+ in France and French-speaking Africa, while the Sky network will air it in Italy, the UK, Ireland, Germany, and Austria. Amazon has picked up the US rights of ‘ZeroZeroZero.’
Besides Dane, the cast includes Andrea Riseborough, Gabriel Byrne, and Harold Torres. The plot thickens when Mexican cartels, the Calabrian mafia, and greedy businessmen lock horns to control and profit from one of the world’s most active trafficking networks. Directors Pablo Trapero of ‘The Clan’ and Janus Metz of ‘True Detective‘ also direct episodes with Stefano Sollima. But, the latest reports from the sets of ‘ZeroZeroZero’ are not good. The production has been delayed by several months because of an on-set accident to Andrea Riseborough. Political tensions in one of the major locations of the series, Mexico also derailed the schedule. Riseborough was injured while shooting in Morocco, and reports revealed that she broke parts of both legs.
Political tensions in Mexico affected the shooting of scenes in Mexico City and Veracruz. The production delays and other issues pushed the release date to early 2020 from late 2019. Despite the dragging schedule, reports say the first two episodes have been mixed and edited. However, it seems like Dane’s fans will have to wait, to watch him deal with the cartels of the cocaine trafficking network, a little bit more.

2. The Stranger (TBA)
There is a reason we are asked not to give rides to strangers, or pick up hitchhikers on the road. The upcoming thriller television series drives this point home. Titled ‘The Stranger’ we follow the events that unfurl after a strange passenger enters a woman’s vehicle. Soon things get out of control as the situation devolves to a chase that could have potentially deadly consequences.
Basically, the story is of a young rideshare driver, who is unassuming and does not seem to know the possibilities of danger when a mysterious Hollywood Hills man enters her car. Soon, she becomes aware of the terrifying situation as we see her navigate the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles over 12 hours, along with her passenger. A very chilling cat and mouse game begins to play out. However, Dane DeHaan’s role is being kept tightly under wraps for now. Knowing him, he will deliver a stellar performance marked with the characteristic intensity we have come to expect. Since ‘The Stranger’ is currently filming, we do not have a release date yet.
We have to see how much screentime DeHaan actually gets in the show, but he will be looking to make his role stand out and be memorable.
1. Lisey’s Story (TBA)
Stephen King’s works are all the rage now, be it in movies or television shows. The master storyteller has no shortage of good tales and there are always people who are willing to turn them to films or series for our pleasure. The upcoming ‘Lisey’s Story’ has not just been written by King but has the master of horror executive producing too. Notably, King has written every episode of the series.
The plot follows a woman who has lost her husband. After his death, she must come to terms with who her husband really was, as she faces some of the aspects of his life she was not completely familiar with. Meanwhile, she has to handle a fan of her husband’s work, who is obsessed with ensuring that the man’s unpublished works see the light of day.
While DeHaan appears in the role of the obsessed fan, Julianne Moore appears as the titular Lisey, and Clive Owen plays the husband. With such a stellar cast on board, we can expect some phenomenal performances, and DeHaan will be looking to distinguish himself as he appears alongside a veteran like Moore. The series is slated to air on Apple’s new streaming platform.
