High-profile film auteur Darren Aronofsky is reportedly trying his hand at television. Deadline reports that the Noah director is developing a new series for HBO based on Canadian author Margaret Atwood’s popular MaddAddam book trilogy. The trilogy, which includes Oryx and Crake (2003), Year of the Flood (2009) and MaddAddam (2013), is set in a dystopian future where corporations now run the show in place of governments.
Aronofsky has signed on as executive producer and could possibly direct. The project is the first to arise from a three-year deal signed by Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures and HBO. Protozoa president Ari Handel, as well as Aronofsky’s fiance Brandi-Ann Milbradt, will also serve as executive producers.
