Can you even imagine it…?!
This will make you! Read On:
“Hobgoblin“, HBO‘s upcoming drama pilot in development, is about a group of con men and magicians who use their skills of deception to help defeat Hitler and the Germans during WWII, to be written by Michael Chabon and his wife, Ayelet Waldman.
Darren Aronofsky, the award-winning director of Black Swan, is on board to direct the Pilot! He was originally contracted to direct FOX‘s “The Wolverine“, the sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine“, but dropped out due to time constraints.
Michael Chabon is a sought-after script doctor and the author of novels including “Wonder Boys“, which was adapted into a feature film starring Michael Douglas in 2000. He and director Andrew Stanton adapted Edgar Rice Burroughs novel “John Carter of Mars” for Disney, set for release in March.
Ayelet Waldman has penned fiction and nonfiction, including “Bad Mother” and “Love and Other Impossible Pursuits“, the latter of which was adapted into the 2009 Natalie Portman starrer “The Other Woman.” She also writes periodically for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post.
Aronofsky, Chabon and Waldman will executive produce with John Lesher and Adam Kassan.
Uff! With a crew so powerful, lets hope the Basterds deliver!
