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.

    Please watch my "Streetwise" music clip. maybe a good idea as a movie theme for the movie "Time Out Of Mind" by Oren Moverman.
    Please Google Streetwise. The song is registered by Buma/Stemra

    I've seen the Messenger and it was a good movie also starring Jena Malone. I saw some pictures from the set of my favourite actress and it looked cool. Jena is really outstanding at playing desperate characters, i mean when she has to do cry scenes, so Go Jena Go!!!!!!!!!!
    I've still a question for you KEVIN about the movie Lonely Hunter again Jena Malone starring in it as the female lead role cause you wrote an article a few years ago and i asked some questions but you never replied to me, so i'm asking you again whether this movie is already finished or is it already available on DVD?

    Can we also mention that he co-wrote the criminally underrated "Jesus' Son"

    "Moverman is set to direct "Time Out Of Mind," and no, it's not a science fiction movie."

    No...it's the title of a (great) Dylan album. Dylan being something that Moverman has a rather strong connection to ("I'm Not There").

    Yes, love Oren Moverman. Rampart was one of the very best of 2011
