Darren Aronofsky Adapting Margaret Atwood ‘MaddAddam’ Trilogy for HBO

Darren Aronofsky will reportedly adapt Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake, Year Of The Flood, and MaddAddam for the small screen. The series is supposedly in development, but since HBO has inked deals with writers from Karen Russell to Sam Lipsyte in the past, with little to show for many of those signings, I won’t get my hopes up too much. Still, this deal features a big-name director, a well-known author, and a science-fiction storyline, so it sounds like it has a much better chance of seeing the light of day than the others.
