Bestselling author Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures Of Kavalier And Klay) is teaming up with HBO and his wife, Ayelet Waldman, for a project about a group of con men and magicians who team up to fight Hitler during World War II. The two will co-write and executive produce the project which is intended to be a series should all go well.
The project, titled “Hobgoblin,” sounds intriguing for sure. Chabon is a fascinating writer, HBO is a risky, interesting network, and Nazis are pieces of shit who deserve to be disappeared and/or eviscerated by magical forces. (Hollywood Reporter)
