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," »
