Project Casting

The critically acclaimed director, Darren Aronofsky is currently in development for a dystopic “MaddAddam” book series for HBO.

The director of thought provoking movies such as Requiem for a Dream, Noah, Pi and Black Swan will executive produce the TV version of Margaret Atwood‘s triology via his Protozoa Pictures company.

After signing a deal with HBO in January, Darren Aronofsky has come out with his first new production. The “Black Swan” director will executive produce the production based off of Margaret Atwood’s “MaddAddam” trilogy, according to Vulture.

The MaddAddam trilogy is a fictional series that centers on a world in which corporations have replaced government and the world is nearly eliminated by a biological plague called “The Flood”.

According to The Wrap, Aronofsky is also considering the possibility of directing the production. He will executive produce the production alongside his future wife, Brandi-Ann Milbrandt, who brought the production to Aronofsky’s production company.

Based on Darren Aronofsky‘s previous productions this TV series looks like it may be a hit especially, if Aronofsky plans to direct the production. The visual imagery in ‘Requiem for a Dream‘ and ‘Black Swan‘ is amazing. If you have not already, check out his early work in the movie ‘Pi‘.
