TRUE DETECTIVE's Alexandra Daddario And Others Testing For Marvel's JESSICA JONES
Marvel's Daredevil is almost completed it's 13 episode shoot, which will see the entire run drop on Netflix in May 2015. The next series is Jessica Jones and Marvel is already testing actresses for the role. According to Deadline ladies such as Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad), Alexandra Daddario (White Collar, True Detective, Texas Chainsaw 3D, Percy Jackson, San Andreas), Teresa Palmer and Jessica De Gouw.
Out of the bunch I'd love to see Alexandra Daddario in the role, since she has balanced both film and television work. Making her and Charlie Cox excellent candidates to crossover to the films in the future. The series is being written and spearheaded by Dexter's Melissa Rosenberg. The hope is that Jones will also be a bit more darker than the other Marvel content, similar to Daredevil's "PG-16" tone.
Jessica Jones, a superhero suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder, which leads to her hanging up her costume and opening her own detective agency, where she ends up helping people and assisting other superheroes.
