Since the dawn of the new year, it’s been hard to keep up with all the film talent HBO was luring to the channel for various projects. Michael Mann is directing a pilot for Luck from Deadwood creator David Milch. Charlize Theron and David Fincher are teaming for the serial killer series Mind Hunter. Russell Crowe and Maria Bello are set to star in Emergency Sex from Slumdog Millionaire scripter Simon Beaufoy. Zooey Deschanel will headline a series adaptation of I’m With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie. And most recently HBO acquired the Todd Haynes miniseries adaptation of Mildred Pierce with none other than Kate Winslet attached to star. Plus miniseries The Pacific, which counts Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks among its producers, will begin a ten-week run on March 14th and the Martin Scorsese-directed pilot for Boardwalk Empire starring Steve Buscemi is set to air later in the year.
But they’re not done just yet. The Hollywood Reporter announced that recent Oscar-nominee (and soon-to-be Oscar-winner) Kathryn Bigelow will direct the pilot for The Miraculous Year from a screenplay by John Logan. Details after the break.
