In the fresh aired Sundance Resort in Utah, projects that came are (and what a cool sampling) Hany Abu-Assad (Paradise Now), Miranda July (Me And You And Everyone We Know), Josh Marston (Maria Full Of Grace), Debra Granik (Down To The Bone), Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’T Cry), Paul Thomas Anderson (Hard Eight), (Three Seasons), John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig And The Angry Inch), Darren Aronofsky (Requiem For A Dream), Tamara Jenkins (Slums Of Beverly Hills), Nicole Holofcener (Walking And Talking), Walter Salles (Central Station), Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs) and the list does indeed go on.

Former co-star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was arrested in September for disobeying a police officer and driving without a license, while Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros were arrested within minutes of each other, on drunken-driving charges, in December 2005. Both pleaded guilty. Meanwhile, Dominic Monaghan was pulled over twice for speeding, as was Naveen Andrews and former cast mate Ian Somerhalder. Fellow Lost star Harold Perrineau Jr. was also stopped and cited for not having proper motor vehicle insurance. »
