Hall is set to star in Stanley Kubrick's 'God Fearing Man'. The project, produced by Entertainment One, is developed as an eight-part miniseries, said The Hollywood Reporter.
Hall will take the lead role of Canadian minister Herbert Emerson Wilson, who went on to become one of the best safe crackers and most successful American bank robbers in the early 20th century.
"Kubrick's 'God Fearing Man' presents a larger-than-life story with a complicated protagonist who undergoes a radical transformation.
We knew we had to secure a leading man with the immense talent and charisma needed to carry the project, and we were dedicated to putting in the diligent time and effort to find the perfect fit," said Entertainment One Television executive Michael Rosenberg.
"We cannot be more pleased to have Michael on board, who has time and again demonstrated an uncanny ability to portray captivating characters who must grapple with fundamental internal struggles," Rosenberg said about Hall's involvement.
Hall and Bill Kelman will executive produce the drama. Hall appeared in 'Kill Your Darlings' co-starring Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan, after his TV show 'Dexter' ended.
