Movie development is always interesting to watch, both to see how a movie changes shape and who could or could not have taken it on at any time. "Dead Spy Running" has been kicking around Warner Bros. for a while now, with the studio picking up the project in 2008 with McG first considering the gig, after which, in 2009, "Traffic" scriber Stephan Gaghan was brought on to write and possibly direct. And while the latter didn't happen, "50/50" helmer Jonathan Levine was in talks this spring for the job, and though those conversations didn't pan out, WB has a new man ready to take it on.

Like it or not, filmmaking is undeniably a director's medium. It wasn't always like that, of course: it was only the coming of the auteur theory in the 1950s and 1960s that popularized the idea of the director as the person responsible for all that was great and terrible about a picture. And while anyone who's worked in film knows that it's a collaborative medium, there's still no better way of seeing where the form might be going in the next few years than by looking at the directors who've been making splashes of late.
