Kate Winslet To Star in HBO’s MILDRED PIERCE

Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet is set to star in HBO’s new original five-hour miniseries adaptation of James M. Cain’s MILDRED PIERCE. We wrote about this in August of 2009, but at the time the miniseries was being shopped around and it seems that it found a home on HBO.

According to Michael Ausiello, Kate Winselt will play “a proud, single mother struggling to earn her daughter’s love during the Great Depression in middle-class Los Angeles.” Todd Haynes will direct the miniseries.

Looking at HBO’s track record, it seems that they are once again putting all the chances on their side to win some more awards. I can’t wait to see it.
