    'Prisoners' Director Denis Villeneuve Will Tell 'The Story Of Your Life' In Sci-Fi Drama

    While we're a little bummed the excellent "Prisoners" didn't get a little more Oscar love (it managed one nomination for Roger Deakins' excellent cinematography), the success of the film at least means more movies from Denis Villeneuve which is just fine by us.
