The Complex examines Danny’s potential for success as purveyor of thrills and chills.
There was a time in the early ’90s that it looked like Danny DeVito was really about to sprout his directorial wings and fly. He’d made two pretty successful comedies in Throw Momma from the Train and War of the Roses before moving directing David Mamet’s epic screenplay for Hoffa.

After directing "War of the Roses," "Hoffa," "Matilda," "Death to Smoochy" and "Duplex," Danny DeVito took a decade from helming. But he has now returned behind the camera for an apocalyptic thriller, called "St. Sebastian," which is now in post-production. "I was truly excited about getting behind the camera on this one," said DeVito. "It is my first foray into the thriller genre and I've enjoyed the challenge of making an 89 minute edge-of-your-seater..." The film revolves around a wounded cop, a wounded murderer and a sultry nurse. The three are thrust together, as war rages outside the only possible safe house, an abandoned City Hospital. With no doctors and only a few poor decrepit souls as witnesses, it becomes a rats' maze as the antagonistic trio get separated, and we find out the real reason they are there. "St. Sebastian" stars William Fichtner (The Dark Knight, Black Hawk Down), Lance Reddick ("The Wire, »
