Can’t wait to see OBX on the big screen!
EXCLUSIVE: HBO and Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman have found the subject of their next major miniseries. HBO has acquired the rights to The Wright Brothers. The new David McCullough book tells the story of Wilbur and Orville Wright, who sold and repaired bicycles out of an Ohio shop to pay for their passion: the invention of flying machines that ushered in the aeronautical age right after the turn of the 20th Century. In 1903 on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the brothers changed history by successfully flying the first heavier-than-air-powered machine that carried a pilot.
It puts two-time Pulitzer Prize winner McCullough back with HBO for the third time, and for the second with Playtone, which exec produced John Adams, the miniseries that starred Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney. HBO also turned McCullough’s Truman into a telepic that starred Gary Sinise as Harry Truman.
