Congratulations Jim Uhls and HBO, you’ve got my attention.
Fight Club writer Jim Uhls has been tapped to write Trent Reznor’s HBO/BBC Worldwide Productions miniseriesYear Zero.
Based on the 2007 album by Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails, the concept recording criticizes the U.S. government — specifically the Bush years — and presents a dystopian vision of the year 2022. Reznor has already adapted the album into an alternate reality game.
Uhls, repped by CAA, penned the screenplay for Fight Club andJumper.
Reznor most recently picked up the Academy Award for penning the original score, with Atticus Ross, to Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network. He also composed the score for Sorkin’s upcoming adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
The epic sci-fi miniseries is a co-production of HBO and BBC Worldwide Productions.
Now, if someone can just get on the adaptation for Radiohead’s Ok Computer and Kid A miniseries for HBO.
