Announcement: Kate Winslet and Todd Haynes!

From Variety: Kate Winslet has just (officially?) signed herself onto the new Mildred Pierce adaptation that (may I say, avant-garde) director Todd Haynes is developing for (HBO?) this fall. Swoon!

Though Variety goes so far as to speculate as to the reasons why a newly minted actress would take as her next project a made-for-TV movie, I felt no such reservations or prejudices, for it can hardly be said that the medium makes the project - the medium rather than the writer/director, who is in this case amazing.
