Elijah Wood really likes horror and thriller movies. The actor has been making a big play into the genre lately, starring in the "Maniac" remake, leading the ticking clock race in "Grand Piano," launching his own production company specializing in scares, and signing up to star in the horror flick "Cooties." And now he's jumping into genre waters once again.

For whatever reason, directorial debuts by British character actors tend to lean towards the gritty kitchen-sink drama; Tim Roth, Gary Oldman and, more recently, Paddy Considine have all broken their filmmaking cherry with uncompromisingly tough, bleak subject matter.

But then, Fletcher's best known for being one of the central quartet, alongside Jason Statham, Jason Flemyng and Nick Moran, in Guy Ritchie's debut "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," and for appearing frequently in 's pictures, so could Fletcher have turned out some kind of guns and geezers movie instead?
