The Undoing - Donald Sutherland to Star in HBO Limited Series By Nirat Anop (November 29, 2018, 4:22 am)
Donald Sutherland (Trust, The Hunger Games) has been cast to star opposite Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant in HBO's upcoming 6-episode limited series, The Undoing per Deadline.
The Undoing is an adaptation of Jean Hanff Korelitz's novel, You Should Have Known. David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies) will pen the limited series with Susanne Bier (The Night Manager) directing.
The Undoing centers on Grace Sachs (Kidman), who is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. She's a successful therapist, has a devoted husband (Grant) and young son who attends an elite private school in New York City. Overnight a chasm opens in her life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.
Sutherland will play Franklin Renner, Grace's father, a retired financier and loving grandfather, who is tasked with protecting his family when turbulent revelations come to light.
