Darren Aronofsky set to direct pilot for HBO's Hobgoblin
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Another day, another news story about Darren Aronofsky. While the director continues to shop NOAH, he has signed on to supernatural World War II HBO series HOBGOBLIN.
The series has been in development for months over at the network and is being written by husband and wife team, Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman. The story is an interesting one, “a group of con men and magicians using their skills of deception to help defeat Hitler during World War II.” Sounds like something straight out of a comic book.
Aronofsky is set to direct the potential pilot for the show. There are no other details on any further involvement with the director pertaining to the show. Several directors have been choosing to work in television while juggling possible movie projects. Be on the look out for other television projects like HOUSE OF CARDS from David Fincher starring Kevin Spacey and the pilot for MIRACULOUS YEAR directed by Kathryn Bigelow.
