It had been a good long while since we'd heard anything about the development of HBO's Michael Chabon-scripted, Darren Aronofsky-directed pilot 'Hobgoblin,' so much so that we'd nearly forgotten about the World War II period illusionist drama, which has been described as "'Inglorious Basterds' with magic." Now, HBO is said to have officially passed on shooting a pilot, with Aronofsky departing as well, though FX may give the series a chance.
