I didn’t know that this project was something he has been wanting to do, but according to an interview he did with IFC, he’s taking steps toward making the movie a reality. Not only that, but he is going “far larger in scope than anything he’s ever attempted”. Oh boy!
Being a huge fan of his films, as emotionally draining as they can be, I’d be excited to see the staunchly human element he would undoubtedly bring to the story.
Did I say “Oh boy!” yet?
