HBO to adapt Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy


HBO is developing a TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood's acclaimed dystopian MaddAddam trilogy.

Not many details are known, but Oscar-nominated director and screenwriter Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler) is said to be the executive producer of the project and might direct the series himself, according to a report on

Atwood's series about a group of survivors on Earth following a global catastrophe began with Oryx and Crake (2003), continued with The Year of the Flood (2009), and recently concluded with MaddAddam (2013). The Year of the Flood was a finalist on this year's Canada Reads, defended by Stephen Lewis.

Aronofsky is also co-directing a film adaptation of John Vaillant's Canada Reads 2012 contender The Tiger.
