New, 10 comments

HBO is developing a new television series based on Margaret Atwood's acclaimed trilogy of science fiction novels, Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood, and MaddAddamaccording to Deadline. Darren Aronofsky, the director of Requiem for a Dream and — most recently — Noah, is reportedly executive producer for the series, and there's a potential that he'll end up directing too. The books were released over the last decade and take place in a world of advanced genetic engineering where big corporations are in control. The series will reportedly be titled MaddAddam, but production appears to be just getting started, so there are few tangible details for now.
