As a longtime collaborator of Christopher Nolan, celebrated and Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister has had plenty of opportunity to see one of the best directors working in action. And now, he's about to take the skills he's picked up, and venture out on his own project.

Alcon Entertainment has announced that Pfister will make his directorial debut on a project that, in true Nolan style, is being kept totally under wraps. There is no title, and the script, by newcomer Jack Paglen, is being kept under lock and key. All we know is that it will get in front of cameras this fall. Straight Up Films folks Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen, Regency Boies and Annie Marter, will produce alongside Alcon dudes, Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove. And, well, that's about it. Pre-production is underway.

In addition to working with Nolan, Pfister has acted as DoP on a number of commercials, and even helmed a few himself, most notably some spots for the Montana Meth Project, which you can watch below. So what will this turn out to be? Guess we'll find out soon, but we're damned curious, and if all else fails, this will still be something great to look at.
