Catherine Hardwicke
Catherine Hardwicke is insane. This isn't a dig. It's a fact. Like the sky is blue and water is wet. The director of "Thirteen" and the first "Twilight" has a delightfully off-kilter aura that is positively infectious. After helping to create that blockbuster franchise (and, honestly, what would those movies be without her casting?), she directed a big studio movie for Warner Bros. ("Red Riding Hood") before going back to what she does best: dramatize the lives of young people on the edge. The result? "Plush," which after a brief theatrical run is out on DVD this week.

After taking a sharp swing towards the mainstream with "Twilight" and "Red Riding Hood," it seems that director Catherine Hardwicke is determined to get back to the indie grit with which she made her name, with films like "Thirteen" and "Lords Of Dogtown." Over the past year she's aligned herself with a handful of projects including the provocatively named book adaptation "The Bitch Posse"; a boxing biopic with Noomi Rapace attached; and the erotic thriller "Plush" with Evan Rachel Wood. And now another project has landed on her slate that has nothing to do with vampires or werewolves.
