    Bigelow and Boal Chase Ripped-from-Headlines Bergdahl Movie--As Do Fox Searchlight and Todd Field

    During the 2012/2013 marketing swing on "Zero Dark Thirty," for whatever reason, Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal tried to separate themselves as distinct entities. She was the director who collaborated with him as her writing and producing partner. And they didn't want to be seen as a romantic couple,...

    'Zero Dark Thirty' Duo Kathryn Bigelow & Mark Boal Planning Film On Controversial POW Bowe Bergdahl

    Well, if there was ever any doubt, we can say now firmly that Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal are not afraid of controversy. The director/writer pair had a certain amount of backlash from "The Hurt Locker," but nothing compared to their follow-up "Zero Dark Thirty" — willfully misread by some as being...

    Todd Field To Write & Direct Adaptation Of Bestseller 'Beautiful Ruins'

    Are we finally going to see a new movie from director Todd Field? It has been a far-too-long seven years since his excellent "Little Children" and we've been waiting patiently for "The Creed Of Violence" to get moving, all the while Field has taken to directing Captain Morgan commercials and produci...

    Watch: First Part In Todd Field-Directed Trilogy Of Ads For Captain Morgan

    Sometimes a film director's choice of side commercial gigs poses a change that edges them outside of their usual boundaries. Just look at James Gray's Citroen commercial, with Ewan McGregor playing Bourne alongside Vinessa Shaw. But “Little Children” helmer Todd Field has outdone him wholesale, with...

    Christian Bale In Talks To Star In Todd Field's 'The Creed Of Violence'

    It's now nearly six years since we last saw a film from director Todd Field. And you would think that there wouldn't be such a gap from the filmmaker, given that his directorial debut was the Oscar-nominated "In The Bedroom" (which saw him pick up nods for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay), and...

    Todd Field Was Set To Write & Direct An Adaptation Of Aravind Adiga's 'The White Tiger' Before Legal Troubles Halted Its Progress

    We've often wondered about long absences from some of our favorite helmers, and pondered when and how they might return in our "What Happened To These Directors" pieces. While many of the talent highlighted in both our 2008 feature and the 2011 update have since gon...
