Though they're, at the most, halfway through the series, HBO is already starting to look for potential successors to "Game of Thrones," which recently became the biggest hit in the network's history. With "True Blood" wrapping up this year, they're very much in the market for another fantasy/sci-fi-type show: Damon Lindelof's "The Leftovers" will debut in a few weeks, and only a week or two back, it was revealed that Darren Aronofsky is developing an adaptation of Margaret Atwood's "MaddAddam" trilogy.

Trying to predict what Joe Wright will do next is a fool's errand. The director has moved effortlessly from literary adaptations ("Pride & Prejudice") to WWII sagas ("Atonement") to assassin thrillers ("Hanna") to Powell & Pressburger styled melodrama ("Anna Karenina") with ease. But making a fantasy has long been an itch he's been eager to scratch, and a new version of "The Little Mermaid" was once something he was eager to do (though the recent run of fairy tales movies has taken a bit of his enthusiasm out of doing it). But now he's latched onto something that could finally see him take on the fantasy genre.
