If you've followed this blog, you already know how much we dig Oren Moverman. He's the writer/director behind the duo of terrific dramas "The Messenger" and "Rampart," and while he's been brewing a few projects since (including the forthcoming Brian Wilson biopic "Love & Mercy," which he wrote and has Paul Dano and John Cusack set to star in), nothing has returned him behind the camera. Now that is set to change.

Oren Moverman

If you've followed this blog, you already know how much we dig Oren Moverman.  He's the writer/director behind the duo of terrific dramas "The Messenger" and "Rampart," and while he's been brewing a few projects since (including the forthcoming Brian Wilson biopic "Love & Mercy," which he wrote and has Paul Dano and John Cusack set to star in), nothing has returned him behind the camera. Now that is set to change.

Moverman is set to direct "Time Out Of Mind," and no, it's not a science fiction movie. Instead, it stars Richard Gere, and is based on a story by Jeffrey Caine ("The Constant Gardener," "GoldenEye"), about a New York man who tries to patch things up with his estranged daughter, all while struggling to get his life back on track after circumstances force him into a homeless shelter. It sounds like a potent matchup of solid material with a great director/star pairing, and this one is coming together quickly.

Production will start in March, and sales reps will be presenting the project to buyers in Berlin next month. Can it be finished in time for TIFF? Fingers crossed.
