20 May – A month after it was announced that HBO will be producing a series based on Audrey Niffenegger's novel "The Time Traveler's Wife", it was reported that David Nutter has been called to helm the said series, which is now filming in New York.
Starring Rose Leslie (HBO's "Game of Thrones"), Theo James ("Divergent"), Desmin Borges ("You're the Worst") and Natasha Lopez ("Runner Runner"), the series tells the story of Clare and Henry, whose marriage is challenged by Henry's genetic disorder that causes him to time travel unpredictably.
"Sherlock" showrunner Steven Moffat, who pens the story for the project, stated, "This is a story of loss but it's not a tragedy. It's about a time traveller but it's not science fiction. Despite Clare and Henry's time scrambled relationship, this is the tale of a grand, ordinary love - but not necessarily in that order. This is a dream project for me."
"I have always loved Audrey Niffenegger's extraordinary, moving novel and it has inspired me many times, so to be adapting it for television is the thrill of a lifetime. Working with David Nutter is a joy and an honour already, and with Rose Leslie and Theo James as Clare and Henry, and Natasha Lopez and Desmin Borges as Charisse and Gomez, this is going to be the love story we need right now."
David Nutter is not a stranger to HBO shows, having directed episodes of shows like "Game of Thrones", "Band of Brothers" and "The Sopranos".
