    Mark Romanek To Direct Casey Affleck In 'Boston Strangler'

    Mark Romanek is a director we could use more of. It took eight years after "One Hour Photo" to make 2010's "Never Let Me Go," and we've been waiting ever since for his next feature. He was attached to Disney's "Cinderella" for a time, before money and a creative clash with the studio kiboshed the gi...

    Interview: Mark Romanek Talks Making 'One Hour Photo,' What Happened With 'Cinderella' & What Might Be Up Next

    'A Better Life' And 'Twilight: New Moon' Director Chris Weitz To Rewrite Disney's 'Cinderella' For Mark Romanek

    Boy, Disney are keen for us not to give up on their new live-action version of "Cinderella." When first announced a couple of years ago, we were pretty ho-hum: fairy-tale movies were already ten-a-penny after the success of "Alice in Wonderland", and the creative team of producer...

    Mark Romanek Tops The List To Direct Dan Brown's 'The Lost Symbol'

    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...
