Mark Romanek is a director we could use more of. It took eight years after "One Hour Photo" to make 2010's "Never Let Me Go," and we've been waiting ever since for his next feature. He was attached to Disney's "Cinderella" for a time, before money and a creative clash with the studio kiboshed the gig. But now a project is on his plate that sounds much more exciting than a mainstream tentpole, and it will find him working with an actor who has no problem signing on to great material.

So, is this going to be Casey Affleck's "Zodiac"? Let's hope so, because the material is a no brainer, and getting a major studio interested in something that isn't a four quadrant knock out of the park is no mean feat.
