Billy Elliot director takes on The Corrections

Billy Elliot director takes on The Corrections

Stephen Daldry, director of Billy Elliot and the yet-to-be-released The Hours, will next tackle an adaptation of Jonathan Franzen's National Book Award-winning The Corrections, reports Variety. The novel deals with three generations of a deeply dysfunctional Midwestern family who spend one last Christmas together at home. Out producer Scott Rudin optioned the book with his own money before it was published by FSG. The Corrections will reteam Daldry, Rudin, and screenwriter David Hare, all of whom collaborated on The Hours, based on the novel by gay author Michael Cunningham.
