French filmmaker Olivier Assayas is no stranger to English-language films; "Irma Vep," among others of his films, have had substantial English-language segments. But he's never made something entirely in English, and he's never come to the U.S. to make something. Until now, that is.

Michael Mann's 'Big Tuna' Project Covers The Same Subject, But A Very Different StoryThree-time Oscar nominated actor/director/writer Todd Field ("In the Bedroom") has been missing in action for around five years now -- his last picture was 2006's "Little Children," which earned him his second Academy-Award nomination for writing (Best Adapted Screenplay with Tom Perrotta, the author of the book which the film was based on) -- but it's not for lack of trying. The triple threat had been toiling away on an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian" as produced by Scott Rudin for what felt like several years, but it appeared as if it was stuck in development hell. We've asked around and no one can give us a clear answer whether Field is still involved or not, but Rudin still owns the rights and James Franco has been angling for it of late (all signs point to no, frankly).
