Oscar winner Kate Winslet is looking at a small-screen project: She’s attached to a miniseries based on the James M. Cain novel “Mildred Pierce” that is likely headed to HBO, Variety reports.

Todd Haynes is writing and directing the new version of the novel about a single mother who goes into the restaurant business and gets entangled in murder, which was also made into the Joan Crawford-starring 1945 film.
