HBO Nixes THE CORRECTIONS

It’s been buzzed about for months, has an amazing cast already in place, but HBO announced yesterday that plans for the series based on Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections have been called to a halt.

Deadline reports, “Word is HBO brass liked the performances but the decision came down to adapting the book’s challenging narrative, which moves through time and cuts forwards and back…hampering the potential show’s accessibility.”

Unless someone releases the pilot, we will not get the chance to see Chris Cooper and Dianne Wiest as parents to the dysfunctional Lambert family, including their adult children, played by Ewan McGregor and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
