HBO has now acquired the rights to Isaac Asimov’s “Foundation Trilogy” and will develop a series with Warner Bros. TV and Jonathan Nolan (“Interstellar” co-writer) writing and producing, according to an article in The Wrap.  Been waiting a long time for this…!  As I previously blogged, Sony had acquired the rights in 2009, with Roland Emmerich set to direct, but HBO apparently took over the property this summer.
