Brooklyn director John Crowley to oversee new TV drama

The Irishman will be helming a project based on the novel Dreams Of Leaving by Rupert Thomson.

Director of Oscar-nominated Brooklyn John Crowley is to become a showrunner for a new television series based on a book by novelist Rupert Thomson called Dreams of Leaving.

The British playwright Nick Payne is set to work on the show. See Saw Films - the production company involved - will be hoping to make six or eight episodes which will all be directed by Crowley.

Dreams of Leaving tells the story of Moses, a young man brought up in a fictional English town that no one has ever left. The quaint village in question is a seemingly idyllic paradise of traditional values but when Moses manages to escape to London, he begins to unearth the bizarre and chilling secrets of his past.

Nobody has yet picked up the project but with the kind of talent involved it shouldn't take too long. Currently Crowley is also working on another adaption of a popular novel, as he's set to direct the film version of Donna Tart's The Goldfinch.
