At the beginning of the year we broke down the myriad of projects that Ridley Scott was attached to (he's added a few more since then as well), and the bottom line is, the 75-year-old director just isn't going to get to them all. But filmmaking runs in the Scott family, and Ridley's daughter, Jordan Scott, has already spread her wings. She helmed the somewhat underrated boarding school drama "Cracks" starring Eva Green and Juno Temple a couple of years back, and she's done commercial work as well for Agent Provocateur, Armani and more. But now another fashion label is getting her attention.

John Hillcoat just doesn't do uplifting. He has a pretty good handle on the heartbreaking and emotionally affecting, but raising your spirits just doesn't seem to be his bag (at least in his feature films; remember that Levi's ad?). While we wait patiently for Hillcoat's next feature "The Wettest County" (or are we calling it "Lawless" now?) to arrive in theatres, here's an ad he's directed for the U.K.'s National Lottery.

While we patiently wait for Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" to start rolling in front of cameras, the director has been keeping his skills sharpened on a couple of sideline gigs, helming some bracing spots for The Meth Project Foundation as well as a video for Metallica and Lou Reed's silly Lulu album. But this next one we didn't exactly see coming.

Jordan Scott Eyeing A 'Ghost Story' For Her Next FilmEXCLUSIVE: You would think that a feature film directed by the daughter of Ridley Scott and the niece of Tony Scott, starring Eva Green no less, would generate a fair amount of buzz. But, for whatever reason the movie gods have dictated, "Cracks" is only now rolling out in theaters via IFC; a long time since it premiered at TIFF way back in 2009. And that's really a shame. The film is being slept on by critics, the very same ones who usually beg and fawn for this kind of movie. Featuring an ensemble of complex female characters led by Green, the film easily conjures comparisons to "Picnic At Hanging Rock," "Heavenly Creatures" and "Lord Of The Flies." It's a crackling dark drama of the kind they just don't make very often.
