Last week there was word that “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” helmer Rupert Wyatt had lined up another potential project, an adaptation of Sebastian Faulks’ novel “Birdsong.” Well, it seems that the British director is eager to get started on his passion project as he’s already lined up his leading man.

For someone who might be one of the most sought-after directors around right now, Rupert Wyatt is certainly taking his time picking his next project. It's been eighteen months since Wyatt's second film, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," proved to be a surprisingly huge hit, which marked him in the eyes of many as the next Christopher Nolan. But Wyatt dropped out of the sequel, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," citing a reluctance to rush the film for a summer 2014 release date, and while other films are in the mix -- sci-fi actioner "Agent 13" with Charlize Theron, based-in-fact Russian spy tale "Londongrad" -- the only thing Wyatt has committed to is the pilot of AMC's Civil War-era spy series "Turn."
