Lucrecia Martel Zama
It's hard to believe that it's now five years since Lucrecia Martel blew us away with "The Headless Woman," and ever since, we've been eagerly awaiting her next feature. While she's tackled some shorts in the interim, and spent some time trying to mount the sci-fi comic book adaptation "El Eternauta" before it fell apart, the last we heard from Martel was in 2012 when she became attached to "Zama." And then that was it. But it looks like if things shake out the way they should, Martel will be back behind the camera in 2014 with a powerhouse name in support.

We might start writing about long-absent directors more often. In the three months since we picked out five foreign-language filmmakers who've been M.I.A. for several years, three of them have resurfaced in a big way. Arnaud Desplechin ("A Christmas Tale") is shooting "Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian" with Benicio Del Toro and Mathieu Amalric in Detroit, and "Pulse" helmer Kiyoshi Kurosawa aired his TV epic "Penance" in Venice before announcing plans only yesterday to make historical epic "1905" with Tony Leung.
