Kate Winslet to Star in Mildred Pierce


Kate Winslet will star in “Mildred Pierce,” a miniseries adaptation based on the James M. Cain novel that Todd Haynes is writing and directing, reports Variety.

Cain’s tale was famously turned into the 1945 film that won Joan Crawford an Oscar for the lead role of a bored housewife who gets into the restaurant business, an enterprise that leads to backstabbing, romance and murder.

Haynes directed I’m Not There, Safe and Far From Heaven.
