HBO Eying Dianne Wiest, Chris Cooper for Upcoming Series

ALTChris Cooper is in talks to join HBO’s upcoming series The Corrections, for which Dianne Wiest has already signed up.

If officially greenlighted, The Corrections — like the 2001 Jonathan Franzen novel on which it is loosely based — centers on a family trying to organize one last Christmas together before the year 2000. Cooper and Wiest would play the lead husband and wife.

Corrections‘ pilot is to be directed by Greenberg helmer (and Wes Anderson buddy) Noah Baumbach, with Scott Rudin producing.
