Captain Marvel's Brie Larson to Star as Undercover CIA Operative in Upcoming Apple Series

Apple has placed a straight-to-series order for an untitled drama series based on the life experiences of undercover CIA operative Amaryllis Fox and her upcoming memoir Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the CIA, according to Variety.

The report claims Brie Larson will both star in and produce the series, described as a look at a young woman's journey in the CIA. In addition to starring as Carol Danvers in the upcoming Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame films, Larson had an Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning role in the 2015 film Room.

Michael Ellenberg and Lynette Howell Taylor will also serve as executive producers, according to the report. Ellenberg is also producing Apple's morning show drama starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, who were both reportedly invited to Apple's expected streaming video service reveal on March 25.

Apple has ordered dozens of TV shows and movies for the video service, expected to launch in more than 100 countries later this year.

She is going to become the worst cinematic mistake ever! She is going to make The Last Jedi looks good.

I assume she signed the standard multi-film contract with Marvel.

And she's got time to do a TV series as well?
I think Marvel is done with her. Avengers is having re-shootings and her role is going to be minuscule. When you go from the big screen to TV is not good. She is obviously an untalented person, toxic and totally forgettable. Not the first one in movie history.
