'Watchmen' TV Series Planned by HBO and Zack Snyder?

1 October 2015 12:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A Watchmen TV show? That's what a new rumor claims may be happening at HBO, with original director Zack Snyder in-line to produce this retelling of the popular comic book miniseries. Zack Snyder first directed an adaptation of Alan Moore's iconic tale in 2009, but it failed to set the box office on fire. Many fans thought it was better suited to a long form storytelling format. And that may turn out to be the case.

Even before it went into production, many believed Alan Moore's seminal DC Comics adventure Watchmen was to unwieldy for the big screen. It is a monster work of interconnecting story lines and referential plot. And even with a runtime of 3 hours, it all couldn't be contained within the frame work of Zack Snyder's film. So now he wants to try again. This time, the story will be told in a serialized nature better suited to its attributes. »

What’s the Significance of Bird’s Body in ‘A Personal Matter’? (WSJ Book Club)

24 September 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

Jonathan Franzen, author of “The Corrections,” “Freedom,” and “Purity,” is hosting the WSJ Book Club this month. He selected Kenzaburo Oe’s harrowing short novel from 1964, “A Personal Matter,” which he calls “an unusually readable existentialist novel.”

We’ll be reading “A Personal Matter” over the next few weeks, with regular discussion questions on Speakeasy. Participate by jumping into the lively conversation on the WSJ Book Club Facebook page, or follow along on Twitter with #WSJBookClub. Sign up to receive our email newsletter here. »

Watch: First Clip from Noah Baumbach's 'Mistress America' With Lola Kirke & Greta Gerwig

17 July 2015 11:29 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Noah Baumbach’s been on a hell of a run of late. Refusing to let his unseen HBO pilot of “The Corrections” stop his momentum, he’s been on a prolific tear the last few years, with the wonderful “Frances Ha” followed by this year’s “While We’re Young,” the biggest hit of his career to date. Even before he shot the latter, he already had a new movie in the can, “Mistress America,” which, like ‘Frances,’ is a collaboration with his muse Greta Gerwig.  Shot in glorious color this time, but with much of the same creative team involved, the film centers on Tracy (up-and-comer Lola Kirke from “Gone Girl” and “Mozart In The Jungle”), who arrives for college in New York and is taken under the wing of Brooke (Gerwig), a vivacious young woman who will soon be Tracy’s step-sister.  Read More: Watch Noah Baumbach Go »

Jonathan Franzen, Elena Ferrante, and 8 More of BookExpo’s Hottest Galleys

29 May 2015 1:46 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This year’s edition of BookExpo America, the bookselling trade fair currently winding down at the Javits Center, is the first to be followed by a completely separate BookCon, the consumer-facing convention that runs this weekend. But that didn’t seem to take any heat off the annual frenzy of industry people hungry for news of big forthcoming titles and — more important — free galley copies thereof. Here are the books that store owners, librarians, and hangers-on talked about most and snapped up the fastest.1. Purity, by Jonathan Franzen (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, Sept. 1)The author of The Corrections and Freedom didn’t have to participate in a keynote Q&A to promote his next title, but Wednesday’s discussion of the ways his new novel will depart from previous work (more political and more fast-paced) probably fed the curiosity of Franzen fanatics and skeptics alike. Visitors from the hinterlands who hadn »

Noah Baumbach Says 'The Corrections' Was "Too Complex" And "Too Expensive" For HBO

31 March 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Noah Baumbach has been on something of a tear recently, knocking out the whimsical "Frances Ha," the now-playing tale of middle age crisis "While We're Young," and the upcoming "Mistress America" which recently premiered at Sundance (review here). But it might be easy to forget that somewhere in there, the director dipped his toe in the world of television, shooting a pilot for HBO. The project was a star-studded adaptation of Jonathan Franzen's acclaimed "The Corrections," with Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Chris Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Rhys Ifans and Greta Gerwig all part of the ensemble. You would think the series would be a no brainer, but in the spring of 2012, HBO passed. So what happened? Well, it's a mix of Baumbach not falling into the rhythms of making drama for television and a package that HBO figured wasn't worth the price tag. "I don’t know that I appreciated »
