Attention Jonathan Franzen Fans

It was announced at the New Yorker Festival a couple of days ago that HBO will do an adaptation of Franzen’s The Corrections. Franzen will adapt his novel into a series, and Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) and Scott Rudin (The Social Network, Revolutionary Road) are both to be involved. There are unconfirmed rumors that Anthony Hopkins will play the lead.

Here’s a video of Franzen discussing the project with New Yorker editor David Remnick:
