After taking in three Academy Awards with Paul Greengrass. 2007 spy thriller The Bourne Ultimatum (for editing, sound mixing and sound editing), Universal .s series went back to no nominations with Tony Gilroy.s The Bourne Legacy in 2012. While we wait to see who or what will get attached to the fifth Bourne film, Universal is keeping award-friendly directors around for all their adaptations of Robert Ludlum novels. The studio is bringing back their take on the 1982 bestseller The Parsifal Mosaic, with revered Chinese director Zhang Yimou gracefully fistfighting his way to the director.s chair. A Chinese director handling a Hollywood film is as rare as a moon that is actually colored blue without a scientific explanation. My interest is certainly piqued.

Toe pick!

Not a character spin-off from the X-Men series, but rather the directing debut from the writer of Real Steel, The Bourne Legacy and the more noteworthy title in his scribing filmography: The Fall. Paired with cinematographer Robert Elswit (Paqul Thomas Anderson’s right-hand man), this is an adult dramatic thriller might be our L.A. Confidential for the new age.
