Todd Field Finally Returns

3 June 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's been a decade since director Todd Field's masterful Little Children followed up his equally potent In the Bedroom, and we have been clammoring for his next effort since. After many close calls and proposed projects, his next literary adaptation is finally coming to fruition. Showtime has announced a two season, 20 episode order for Purity, based on last year's Jonathan Franzen globehopping novel. With the cable network throwing its weight behind the series, this is exciting news for those over us who have watched his many projects never get beyond the announcement stage.

This one comes with a high pedigree: Daniel Craig has signed on to play the central pseudo-WikiLeaks activist Andreas Wolf (sealing the final nail in the coffin to any Bond speculation), with Franzen and Oscar nominee David Hare sharing the writing duties with Field. The female lead has yet to be cast, but it's a strong »

Daniel Craig is now confirmed to be starring in and executive producing a straight-to-series limited drama based on "The Corrections" author Jonathan Franzen's latest novel "Purity" at Showtime.

The series was picked up with a twenty-episode order and centers on a young woman named Purity (aka Pip) who, in search of answers about herself and her family, winds up interning in South America at the Sunlight Project - a group which deals with all the secrets of the world.

Craig is eyed to play Andreas, a German provocateur who crosses paths with Pip. Todd Field ("In the Bedroom") will write, direct and executive produce the series which Franzen, Scott Rudin, Eli Bush, and David Hare will executive produce.

Franzen and Hare will also serve as writers on the series with Field set to direct all twenty episodes. The series will air over two years on Showtime with production to begin next year. »

Daniel Craig To Headline New Limited Drama Series Purity

15 February 2016 11:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Questions continue to loom over Daniel Craig’s future on the silver screen as 007, though the actor is reportedly eyeing up a role that is worlds away from the rat-a-tat action of British espionage.

According to Variety, Craig has closed a deal to headline Purity, a new 20-episode drama series that is currently doing the rounds at the biggest networks in the country. Showtime and Netflix are among the early bidders to snatch rights for the limited series, itself an adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s novel of the same name which hit store shelves last September.

Currently, Scott Rudin and Todd Field (In The Bedroom, Little Children) are attached to produce and direct, respectively, with the latter working on a script in tandem with Franzen.

Beyond Daniel Craig, it’s too early yet for the production to nail down its cast, though we understand the core story centers on Purity »

Daniel Craig To Star In Limited Series Adaptation Of Jonathan Franzen's 'Purity,' Directed By Todd Field

14 February 2016 7:31 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As befits a critically acclaimed, best-selling author, adaptations of Jonathan Franzen's work attract big league talent. Noah Baumbauch attempted to wrestle "The Corrections" into a series for HBO, starring Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Chris Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Rhys Ifans, and Greta Gerwig, but got in over his head. And now another one of Franzen's works is headed to the small screen, also with big league talent involved. Variety reports that James Bond, a.k.a. Daniel Craig, will star in "Purity." The limited series will be co-written by Franzen and Todd Field ("In The Bedroom," "Little Children"), with the latter directing. We're particularly excited to see Field back behind the camera. It has been a decade since "Little Children," and while he's seen a number of projects percolate ("Beautiful Ruins," "As It Happens," "The White Tiger," "The Creed Of Violence," »
