Jude Law Struggles With Umbrella During Filming ‘The Young Pope’ Season 2
Jude Law is known to take on difficult roles like in 1999’s The Talented Mr. Ripley or the 2003 hit Cold Mountain but it appears he’s now met his match. While filming The New Pope, Law struggled with his umbrella. The star was seen riding a boat through the canals of Venice, Italy when the winds turned the umbrella inside out.

The two-time Academy Award nominee was filming for the HBO limited series follow up to The Young Pope. This series will follow the life of the first American pope, Lenny Belardo, played by Law. John Malkovich will also star alongside him in an unspecified role. A first look image showed the two wearing papal vests leading some to believe that Malkovich will actually play the new pontiff.
Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino created the show. He’s also written the eight episodes along with Umberto Contarello and Stefano Bises. Sorrentino will direct the entirety of the project.
Law previously played Pope Pius XIII in Sorrentino’s Young Pope.
The show first began shooting in Rome before moving to the United Kingdom. Currently, production is underway in Venice but is expected to move back to Rome. No airdate has been set.
