Daniel Craig will star in an adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s novel Purity which is currently part of a bidding war between a number of TV channels.
The limited series is being produced by Scott Rudin who is believed to have had meetings with Showtime, Netflix and a number of other channels about who will broadcast the show.
The plan is to produce 20 episodes based on the novel which was published last year.
The story follows a young woman named Purity but known as Pip. She was raised in unusual circumstances in Northern California and after college ends up drifting from Oakland to Bolivia to Denver in a series of jobs and relationships with equally offbeat characters.
It certainly sounds a world way from the Bond franchise.
