An Oscar-nominated director has picked up a brand new directorial gig for HBO. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow has signed on to direct the HBO pilot The Miraculous Year.
John Logan wrote the script, which takes a look at a New York family through the eyes of an eccentric Broadway composer. Logan was previously a playwright before turning his attention to screenplays, which include his first script Any Given Sunday and his Oscar-nominated screenplays for Gladiator and The Aviator.
Bigelow and Logan will executive produce the pilot along with Lydia Pilcher and the pilot was said to start production in either May or June.
