Maggie Gyllenhaal is heading back to TV. The Honorable Woman star has joined David Simon’s 1970s/'80s porn drama The Deuce. She joins James Franco as a producer and star on the long-in-the-works project, which is expected to begin filming in New York in October. Gyllenhaal will play Eileen Merrell -- or "Candy" on the street -- a Times Square hooker and veteran with an entrepreneurial bent who is drawn into the fledgling porn industry. The Deuce follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York of the early 1970s and continues through the mid-1980s. The long-in-the-works entry will explore the rough-and-tumble world that existed in midtown Manhattan until the rise of HIV, the violence of the cocaine epidemic and the renewed real estate market all ended the bawdy turbulence.
