Typically when your most recent film racks up a couple of Oscar nominations and an outstanding box office take, studios have their hands out practically begging you to bring your dream project to their doorsteps. Helmer Tate Taylor hasn’t exactly followed that path after his success with 2011’s “The Help,” even after the multiple awards which included Octavia Spencer’s win at the Oscars for Best Supporting Actress. Taylor has been slow to line up his next directorial effort, passing on longtime friend and actress Melissa McCarthy’s R-rated road trip comedy “Tammy,” with brief word back in August that Taylor was in early talks to direct an adaptation of the 2002 novel "Peace Like A River" for DreamWorks and Warner Brothers.
