Director Atom Egoyan has a number of acclaimed films under his belt — "The Sweet Hereafter," "Felicia's Journey," "Exotica" — but it should also be noted, that when he stumbles, he misses hard. His last two films in particular didn't hit the mark, with the campy sexytimes "Chloe" and the West Memphis Three drama "Devil's Knot" finding the director off his game. And while we wait to see how his Cannes entry "The Captive" turns out, he's already lining up his next pic.

Director Atom Egoyan has a number of acclaimed films under his belt — "The Sweet Hereafter," "Felicia's Journey," "Exotica" — but it should also be noted, that when he stumbles, he misses hard. His last two films in particular didn't hit the mark, with the campy sexytimes "Chloe" and the West Memphis Three drama "Devil's Knot" finding the director off his game. And while we wait to see how his Cannes entry "The Captive" turns out, he's already lining up his next pic.

Veterans Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau and Bruno Ganz along with "Breaking Bad" fave Dean Norris have been slated to star in "Remember." The film is said to be a thriller "in which the darkest chapter of modern history collides with a contemporary mission of revenge." Okay, then....any guesses?

It's hard not to like this cast, and the logline has us intrigued, but let's just hope this finds Egoyan on top form and hopefully coming out of his recent slump. Production begins in July. [THR]
