Benh Zeitlin at Sundance
"Beasts of the Southern Wild" director Benh Zeitlin is returning to Louisiana for his next project, centering on a strange ecosystem where the aging process is warped, and people grow old either very quickly or incredibly slowly. Reportedly Zeitlin hopes to use the same cast and production team for the currently untitled film. Fans of young Quvenzhané Wallis, who is being tipped as an Oscar contender, get excited.

Zeitlin will be recognized on September 27 at the New Orleans Film Society patron party and gala, receiving the "Celluloid Hero" award.
