I can't imagine anyone but Greengrass even attempting to pull off a real-time movie about the Iraq war. Whether or not they are successful, kudos to them for really pushing themselves.

In other Matt-related director news, I see over at Empire that Dan Bradley will direct his first movie.

Re: directors

I keep posting Green Zone material because I think the process of making this one sounds absolutely fascinating. One of the soldiers said nobody on set had ever been through anything like it. Please let it come out this year...

Good news for Dan Bradley. As Empire wrote, being on Bourne led him to Bond which led him to this.

Re: directors

Yes, this year, please!

In one of Ultimatum's special features Matt talks about Bradley, saying, "I keep trying to get him to direct a full movie, but I don't know when what we'd do during the dramatic scenes... maybe have them DURING car chases (laughs)".

Re: directors

guess I will always follow Greengrass work with interest. I'm quite impressed by all he has made so far and what may follow. It's kinda challenging how he come up with these real-life disclosures, scandales, etc.. did anyone read Spycatcher? it's worth it. I'm absolutely curious to watch Green Zone after all these new information and statements about positive experience and enthusiasm.

re Dan Bradley... wow. I mean I knew about his work in the Bourne parts... but didn't get in for more details so far... after looking for his credits I'm absolutely amazed. there are so many great movies where he did fantastic jobs already *2thumbsup*.
he said in an interview for UGO:
DB: My ultimate goal is to direct my own movie. When I developed the action for the Bourne series, I was given the freedom to exercise my belief and my theory about how to make the action and fighting realistic enough.
so well done to grasp the opportunity to realize the ultimate goal. a redo of Red Dawn might be a real challenge. it will be interesting how he gets the orig. plot of the movie of the 80's adapted into the present days.
