Darren Aronofsky to Adapt Margaret Atwood’s Maddaddam for HBO!

Ooooh, this could be good—apparently Darren Aronofsky adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s Maddaddam series is going into development! Right now Aronofsky is executive producer for the project, and is assembling a writing team, with possible plans to direct. Aronofsky has referred to Atwood as one of his favorite writers, and he hopes to give her plenty of input on the show.

Atwood’s Maddaddam series, consisting of Oryx & Crake, The Year of the Flood, and Maddaddam takes place in the mid-21st century. Governments have been replaced by corporations, and the natural world is ravaged by genetic modification. After a Waterless Flood destroys most of the population, the story charts the survivors’ battles for life—both those whose greed caused the catastrophe, and the innocents left to suffer because of it. Plus hopefully Aronofsky will find a way to add rock monsters.
