    Music video and commercials director Mark Romanek has had a bumpy ride in Hollywood of late. After making an impression with his debut feature "One Hour Photo," the director moved on up to the monster movie feature "The Wolfman" but walked away during the film's famously contentious production.

Then there was his pilot for Fox, "Locke & Key," which was canceled, and despite recent airings at S...

Late this summer, he signed up to adapt a popular series of books by a Swedish criminologist, psychological profiler and author G.W. Pe...
