In possibly my favorite adaptation news of the year, Madeline Miller’s 2018 novel Circe—a gorgeous, gripping reimagining of the story of its titular goddess—will be adapted as and eight-episode limited series on HBO Max (a new subscription streaming service, set to launch in spring 2020). Guess this means I’ll have to subscribe to another streaming service, jeez.
Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who co-wrote Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Jurassic World, will write and executive produce the series. Rick, Amanda: if you’re reading this (as I assume you are), please consider Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Circe and Andrew Scott as Hermes. Seriously. Think about it.
