One of our Breakout Directors Of 2013, there's no doubt David Lowery got a ton of attention following his beautiful breakthrough feature "Ain't Them Bodies Saints." Ever since the film premiered at Sundance last year, he's been racking up gig after gig: writing and directing "The Old Man And The Gun," with Robert Redford slated to star and produce; writing and directing former David Fincher project "Torso"; producing Alex Ross Perry's upcoming "Listen Up Philip"; writing and directing the sci-fi "Two" with Casey Affleck set to star; writing and directing an adaptation of the National Book Award Finalist “The Yellow Birds”; and recently getting behind the camera for an episode of "Rectify" for season two. And it looks like he might be making the blockbuster leap next.
