Ansel Elgort to play lead in WarnerMedia’s upcoming series ‘Tokyo Vice’

Ansel Elgort was announced as the lead in WarnerMedia’s new streaming service’s show Tokyo Vice.

The 10-episode web series was given a straight-to-series order by WarnerMedia.

It is based on Jake Adelstein’s book of the same name and will showcase the author’s personal experiences with Tokyo Metropolitan Police.

The 25-year-old actor will also co-produce the crime-thriller alongside John Lesher and Emily Gerson Saines.

Alongside Tokyo Vice, WarnerMedia is all set to produce other projects like Love Life, Over My Dead Body and the animated series Gremlins.
