Ewan McGregor will star in HBO’s ‘The Corrections’. McGregor is best know for ‘Star Wars‘ and hasn’t made many appearances on TV except for his guest staring role on NBC’s ‘ER’. McGregor will be playing the middle child in the adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s best-seller about an elderly midwestern couple who reunite the family for one last Christmas.
Noah Baumbach and Jonathan Franzen will write the script and exec produce, with Baumbach directing the drama. Production has begun already.
Ewan is not giving up on film, though, as he is slated to star in ‘The Impossible’ and ‘Jack The Giant Killer’.
