HBO wants to turn all the great books into shows, and I’m all for it. Just announced: Darren Aronofsky(!!!) is developing Margaret Atwood’s trilogy of post-apocalyptic novels (Oryx & Crake, The Year of the Flood, MaddAddam) into a TV series called MaddAddam. I’ve only read the first book, but count me in.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO and the BBC are bringing JK Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy to TV as a three-hour miniseries.
