Bell is the latest star attached, the Rocketman actor will join Moss and Wagner Moura for the series which will be adapted and executive produced by Silka Luisa, as well as executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio through his Appian Way Productions.

Based on the bestselling book by Lauren Beukes, The Shining Girls is a science fiction thriller about a serial killer in Chicago during the 1930s who stumbles upon a time-traveling device. The killer must murder “shining girls,” or bright young women full of potential, in order to continue traveling through time.

In the series, Moss plays Kirby Mazrachi a victim of a serial killer Harper Curtis’ attack, who teams with a reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times who is out to expose him.

A bit of backstory, drifter Curtis finds a key to a house in Depression-era Chicago that opens to other times. But it comes at a cost. He has to kill the shining girls: bright young women who burn with potential, in order to keep going.

At the urging of the house, Harper inserts himself into the lives of these various shining girls, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. He’s the ultimate predator, vanishing without a trace into another time after each murder — until one of his victims survives.

Bell also been cast as the dancing icon Fred Astaire opposite Margaret Qualley as Ginger Rogers in the upcoming biopic Fred & Ginger, and just finished shooting Surrounded, a Western starring Letitia Wright and The Wire’s Michael K. Williams.
