Another HBO drama project is in the works from the team behind the miniseries “Mildred Pierce,” including executive producer and director Todd Haynes and EPs John Wells and Christine Vachon, Deadline.com reports.
It’s another period piece, “Dope,” based on the Sara Gran novel. A-List actress Julianne Moore is reportedly in the running for the lead role.
The story reports: “Haynes would potentially direct the project, now in development, from a script by Gran, who adapted her book. ‘Dope’ takes place in New York around 1950 and centers on a woman who re-enters her life after being away at the farm to treat her heroin addiction and becomes a private eye.”
Moore also stars in HBO’s upcoming movie about the 2008 presidential election, “Game Change,” playing Sarah Palin.
