HBO Passes on Noah Baumbach’s Corrections

Despite an all-star cast (Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Dianne Wiest, and Maggie Gyllnehaal, among others) and a script co-written by Jonathan Franzen, HBO will not be moving forward with the Noah Baumbach–Scott Rudin adaptation of The Corrections. This is more than a little surprising! And a shame for anyone who was looking forward to Ewan McGregor's midwestern accent.
