Netflix releases the first images and sets a release date for the prequel to ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’
Netflix has finally been encouraged to launch the first images of ‘Ratched’, the highly anticipated prequel to ‘Someone flew over the cuckoo’s nest’ supported by the participation in it by Ryan murphy. In addition, the platform has also announced its release date: the September 18.
‘Ratched’ will tell us the beginnings of nurse Mildred in a psychiatric hospital in California in 1947. This time it is Sarah paulson who gives life to a younger version of the character immortalized by Louise fletcher in the wonderful film directed by Milos Forman in 1975.
Along with Paulson we will also see Cynthia Nixon, Judy Davis, Sharon Stone, Jon Jon Briones, Finn Wittrock, Charlie Carver, Alice Englert, Amanda Plummer, Corey Stoll, Sophie Okonedo and Vincent D’Onofrio. A great deal for what promises to be one of the best series of the remainder of 2020.
Yes indeed, living up to ‘Someone Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ is not going to be exactly easy, since it is one of the three films – the other two are ‘It happened one night’ and ‘The silence of the lambs’ – that managed to win the Oscars for best film, direction, actor, actress and screenplay. Almost nothing.
Netflix has also launched a poster of the series to whet your appetite even more. You can see it a little below along with the rest of the images.
