Before he was an acclaimed filmmaker, Anton Corbijn was the king of cool, but you might not have known it. He started his career as a photographer, where he captured a diverse array of artists such as Joy Division, Depeche Mode, Tom Waits, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Björk, Elvis Costello, Morrissey and more in iconic pictures. He then moved to music videos where again, his inventive eye made his name a brand, and he still dabbles in that world today, most recently helming "Reflektor" for Arcade Fire (and you can see his recently released director's cut of Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box" right here). But now, the camera is getting turned on Corbijn himself.

Reflektor, Arcade Fire
Arcade Fire are about to have a very, very busy fall. The beloved Canadian art pop band, whose last album was 2010's somewhat Spartan The Suburbs, are back with a new album entitled Reflektor and will also be providing the score to Spike Jonze's new film "Her," which will debut at the New York Film Festival before hopping into the Oscar circuit. The official rollout for the album is in its infancy, but two distinctly different videos have debuted for the title track. One is a moody black-and-white clip from music video auteur Anton Corbijn (watch it below), and the other a crazy interactive joint by frequent collaborator Vincent Morisset that kind of has to be played with to be believed.

Anton Corbijn, Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan
The mystical allure of James Dean continues from beyond the grave: Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan have signed up to star in "Life," which The Hollywood Reporter says is "the true story about the friendship between James Dean and Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock." DeHaan will play Dean and Pattinson will play Stock (sorry ladies). Noted photographer and director Anton Corbijn, whose last movie was the sorely underrated George Clooney thriller "The American," will direct. The film is being shopped in Toronto.

September 13th will mark the 20th anniversary of the release of what would be Nirvana's final album, In Utero, and it's easy to forget just how important it was at the time. The group were arguably the biggest band on the planet, the reluctant leaders of the "alternative" music scene that completely changed the landscape. And that's not to mention the various controversies surrounding the LP, from the artwork to the recording process itself, which found the band working with famed independent engineer Steve Albini (and fans should check his recent interview with Vish Khanna about the making of the album, and what exactly went down in the studio—it's a must listen). And then, there was that music video...

So remember that brief moment when it seemed like Anton Corbijn was going to walk away from making movies after his upcoming thriller "A Most Wanted Man?" Yeah, scratch that. While we wait for that picture, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Rachel McAdams, to drop, Corbijn is already moving on to this next venture and it's a return to the biopic format of his directorial debut "Control."

Anton Corbijn transitioned from music video directing/rock-photography to feature filmmaking fairly late in his career. First up, he combined his love of music and pictures with a biopic of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis that made a star of Sam Riley and followed that up with an adaptation of Martin Booth's novel "A Very Private Gentleman," which he turned into the existential hitman drama "The American" starring George Clooney. Corbijn Is now putting together the pieces for what could be his last hurrah, an adaptation of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" author John le Carre's spy-thriller "A Most Wanted Man."

Robin Wright is in negotations to join Anton Corbijn's adaptation of John le Carré's novel "A Most Wanted Man." Quickly becoming one of our most anticipated projects of 2013 -- Corbijn's "The American" being one of the vastly underrated pictures of 2010 -- this political thriller centers on a Chechian Muslim who illegally immigrates to Hamburg and then gets caught up in the international war on terror.

Wisely not attempting to go the standard-issue bio doc route with a subject who is clearly anything but standard-issue "Anton Corbijn Inside Out," as the title suggests, instead takes a more impressionistic, intimate approach to the celebrated photographer and filmmaker, and in the process creates a thoughtful film that is as much a homage to the creative process as it is a tribute to a man.

Aw, hell yeah. After delivering the sensational, slow burn, anti-thriller assassin tale "The American," Anton Corbijn's next effort is, excitingly, coming to life.

It's been something of a banner year, both critically and commercially, for British film, with the likes of "The Inbetweeners Movie" and "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" tearing it up at the box office at home, while pictures like "Kill List," "Attack the Block," "We Need To Talk About Kevin" and "Shame" have won acclaim from critics at home and abroad. But with the changes in the industry coming from the scrapping of national funding body the UK Film Council last summer starting to take effect, we're at something of a pivot point -- the last of the Film Council-funded features are starting to roll out, and it remains to be seen what kind of effect the move of funding to the British Film Institute will have.
