To follow the spectacles of "Immortals" and "Mirror Mirror," director Tarsem Singh has previously said he'd like to try something non-visual -- such as a talking-heads movie in the vein of "My Dinner with Andre." But before he gets to tackle anything that simple (at least as far as visual feasts go), Singh has his eye on "something in-between" a talker and a stunner that he hopes to do, should the deal go through -- a sprawling, Steven Soderbergh-like hyperlink film inspired by "Traffic," "Contagion" and "Syriana" called "Eye in the Sky."

Basically no-one saw "Five Minutes Of Heaven." Which was a shame, because it was a powerful drama of guilt and reconciliation set amongst the Troubles in Northern Ireland, was easily German director Oliver Hirschbiegel's best since "Downfall," and showcased excellent performances from James Nesbitt and Liam Neeson, the latter given a now-rare opportunity to do something other than punch Europeans in the head.
