Two-time Emmy winner Kate Winslet (Mare of Easttown) will star in and produce an adaptation of Hernan Diaz’s novel Trust, Deadline reported, adding that HBO "acquired the recent bestseller from Riverhead Books in a competitive situation." Diaz will also executive produce the project.
The logline: "When a wealthy financier reads a novel based on his own life and is dissatisfied by his and his wife's portrayal, he asks a secretary to ghostwrite his memoir and set the record straight. She, however, grows uncomfortably aware that he is rewriting history--and his wife's place in it. Told in four different voices and genres, Trust is a narrative puzzle that subverts the notion of truth and who gets to define it."
