For several long and expensive years, Price has also had comedy and drama chief Joe Lewis and his team at work developing a series called Shanghai Snow, based on his own idea.
The project is not listed on IMDb, which is owned by Amazon, though several writers with credits say they have worked on it and Price's friend, the filmmaker McG, was attached to direct.
Aspiring script writer Yale Hannon produced one outline with scribes Evan Spiliotopoulos and Raven Metzner also having written versions.
In the draft written by Hannon, Shanghai Snow follows a young woman named Cindy who is sold into sex slavery. Under the control of a "psychotic imperial Thai dwarf" named Mr. Goodtimes, Cindy is drugged, beaten with a machete and told she will be "fucked like a dead fish."
The Lost star will play a troubled police officer and dog handler in the eight-part drama, in which ex-lovers who survive a terrifying shark attack are thrown together by fate to hunt down murderers.
Monaghan's character grew up in an abusive family, was chained to a dog and bitten as a child, and as a result has developed a serious psychosexual perversion that will play out across the series.
