Umm… yeah, HBO is basically just relentless in their quest to be the greatest force in entertainment history. In addition to the fact that they start filming season two of Game of Thrones next month, they’ve got another new show in the early stages:
Darren Aronofsky just signed on to direct the pilot of a drama called Hobgoblin, which is about “a group of con men and magicians who use their skills of deception to help defeat Hitler and the Germans during WWII.”
Oh yeah, while Aronofsky is directing, a writer by the name of Michael Chabon is co-writing the script with his wife. Hold on, I need to stop writing this post, my brain is exploding.
