Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky is developing Margaret Atwood’s post-apocalyptic drama MaddAddam for HBO.
The TV series will be based on Atwood’s trilogy Oryx and Crake, Year Of The Flood and MaddAddam. The epic story takes place after a Waterless Flood pandemic has wiped out most of humanity in the 21st century, in a corporate controlled world. Atwood recently won the Orion Book Award for the novel MaddAddam.
Deadline.com has the scoop: “Producer Brandi-Ann Milbradt, who is engaged to Aronofsky, brought the project to Protozoa and will serve as executive producer alongside Aronofsky and his longtime collaborator, Protozoa Pictures president Ari Handel. Atwood serves as consulting producer. Aronofsky and his team are currently meeting with writers.”
