The Life and Times of Robert Moses, Coming Soon to HBO

New, 5 comments

Hollywood Reporter has a tasty bit of intel today that Oliver Stone will be directing an HBO feature based on Robert Caro's 1974 book The Power Broker, which tells the story of how the polarizing Robert Moses shaped New York as "master builder." Now let the casting begin! Sopranos vet James Gandolfini is co-producing, and we'd suggest a supporting role as Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia. New Yorker archicritic (and of late, fervent Twitter fan) Paul Goldberger happens to know a lot about Moses and predicts, "Frank Langella, undoubtedly."
