Noooooooooooo! MADDADDAM Out At HBO

Noooooooooooo! MADDADDAM Out At HBO

The adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s MADDADDAM trilogy is still a viable project, but, unfortunately, not for HBO. It appears that the project has been shaping up quite nicely with Eliza Clark, a noted writer, who has already wielded the novel into a manageable production script. And Darren Aronofsky is still very much on board. It just appears now that the project has to be shopped around for the right network to house it. Here is what Aronofsky stated at a New York Film Festival event: “The series is all written. We are working hard on it, and trying to figure it out.

Margaret Atwood Says MADDADDAM Is Still A Go & It Is Big!

Just the other day a commenter asked us if we had heard anything regarding HBO’s adaptation of novelist Margaret Atwood’s Maddaddam Trilogy. We had to respond that we hadn’t, but that we’d investigate. One quick Tweet and…boom a quick response from Atwood herself.

It is a adaptation of a trilogy of books, as we previously reported, by Margaret Atwood.   We have been able to find some interview pieces with her as she talks about her post-apocalyptic trilogy and HBO’s take on it.

Darren Aronofsky Adapting Margaret Atwood’s Dystopian Sci-Fi Trilogy for HBO

Aronofsky is known for his dark portraits. You’ve probably seen his latest works, Noah and Black Swan. But real Aronofsky fans remember movies like Pi and Requiem for a Dream. Over the past year we reported on Darren’s ongoing dealings with HBO but nothing solid had yet surfaced. Today it was revealed that HBO has moved a series into development attached to the Oscar-nominated director. The project, based on Margaret Atwood’s novel trilogy Oryx and Crake (2003), Year Of The Flood (2009), and MaddAddam (2013) is set in the mid-21st century in a world where corporations have taken over for governments and the genetic...
