As far as movie CVs go, writer Jon Raymond has a fairly impeccable record thus far. Having worked with Kelly Reichardt on "Old Joy," "Wendy & Lucy" and "Meek's Cutoff" as well as with Todd Haynes (who produced Reichardt's film) on the first three parts of "Mildred Pierce," he's notched some impressive work under his belt. And he certainly seems to have made an impression on Haynes as the director is set to work with him again an upcoming project.

As far as movie CVs go, writer Jon Raymond has a fairly impeccable record thus far. Having worked with Kelly Reichardt on "Old Joy," "Wendy & Lucy" and "Meek's Cutoff" as well as with Todd Haynes (who produced Reichardt's film) on the first three parts of "Mildred Pierce," he's notched some impressive work under his belt. And he certainly seems to have made an impression on Haynes as the director is set to work with him again an upcoming project.

In an interview with Time Out London about his mini-series, Haynes wouldn't reveal too many details about what he's cooking up next but did say, "Jon [Raymond] and I are just starting a feature about contemporary conservative politics in America. We’re trying to figure out a way into it now."

Sounds like very early days at this point, but there is certainly more than enough material to work with when talking about contemporary conservative politics these days and it's certainly ripe territory for the duo. So we'll leave it at that for now. If anything, it gives us an excuse to run the pretty fascinating, amazing and unedited interview between Jon Stewart and Chris Wallace of Fox News. Check it out below. And oh yeah, if you haven't seen either "Meek's Cutoff" or "Mildred Pierce," what are you waiting for?
