Ewan McGregor recently wrapped filming for the pilot of The Corrections based on Jonathan Franzen’s 2001 novel for HBO. Directed by Noah Baumbach, it also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dianne Wiest, Chris Cooper and Rhys Ifans. UPDATE: Project cancelled.
No news on when the pilot will air, but presumably it will be soon. If it is successful, the series will begin filming in New York in June. The plan is for an ambitious four seasons of ten episodes each.
MacGregor stars in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, based on the novel by Paul Torday, which opened in seven cities on Friday.
