Margaret Atwood’s “MaddAddam” Trilogy is Being Adapted for HBO by Darren Aronofsky

Margaret Atwood Dystopic Trilogy

Just when you thought HBO couldn’t give us anymore off the wall programming, they’ve announced that director Darren Aronofsky (AKA The Black Swan guy) will be taking on Margaret Atwood’s dystopic/speculative fiction trilogy MaddAddam.

The trilogy — which is made up of the novels Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood and MaddAddam — follows a world in the near future where corporations have overrun the government, all food is genetically engineered and mankind is on the brink of destruction thanks to some pesky medication.

You know, just your average mid-21st century post-apocalyptic story.

Add in some hybrid humanoid monsters thrown in for good measure and a rotating cast of characters doomed to die and you have a series that we are stoked to see brought to life.

As long as they promise not to fuck it up.

Dear HBO, please don’t fuck it up. We don’t want to have to side-eye you for forever.

  1. correction: this is a dystopian story, not a post-apocalyptic story.

    Good news; Bad news? We’ll see, Aronofsky is an amazing director and HBO tends to generate better rating shows. Its all positive so far!
