It’s been reported for over a month that HBO is planning to produce a pilot for a possible series based on Jonathan Franzen’s novel, The Corrections. Now it’s official. UPDATE: Project cancelled.
Dianne Wiest and Chris Cooper will play the parents of the dysfunctional Lambert family, but no word on who will play their three children (offering a great opportunity for speculation). Noah Baumbach will direct from the script he is co-writing with Franzen.
