Floria Sigismondi is perhaps best known for music video work, which has seen her collaborate with musicians and bands like David Bowie, Sigur Ros, Fiona Apple, Leonard Cohen, and more. But in 2010 she unveiled her feature directorial debut, “The Runaways,” a somewhat underrated picture about the cult rock ‘n roll band anchored by a flamboyant turn by Michael Shannon. Since then, she’s had a couple of projects brewing away, but now her next one is set up.
Variety reports that Sigismondi will direct an adaptation of Alejandro Jodorosky and Francois Boucq’s comic series “Bouncer.” While Jodorowsky is known for his more fantastical work, this is actually a straight up western about the adventures of a gunslinger and saloon bouncer. We’re really intrigued to see what the visually stylish Sigismondi can bring the genre. Promising stuff and likely more news on the horizon as this will start production in early 2016.
Meanwhile, Sigismondi has also become attached to direct an adaptation of Joe McGinniss Jr.‘s novel “The Delivery Man,” which has nothing to do with that Vince Vaughn vehicle. Instead, it tells the story of a man who gets mixed up in the world of teenage call girls. Here’s the book synopsis:
No exact start date on this one, but good to know it’s something Sigismondi has cooking too, so hopefully the gaps between her next couple of films won’t be too long.
