That's good to hear- I know he's tried to emulate Spielberg in a lot of ways (I believe through self-admission) since his earlier career, so I'm still not convinced he'll return to that mode even if he can. We'll see

I haven’t seen any of it really, but his tv work for the BBC seems quite hard hitting, tackling sex trafficking and political conspiracies, among other things. Yates may be on solider ground than his Potter work would suggest.
The BBC mini-series, State of Play, was superb - remade as the much less decent Affleck/Crowe film of course.

I really love Tilman Singer’s previous feature Luz… kind of a film school demo vibe but in the best (or at least most ‘my shit’) kind of way. 70 minutes of fun with mise en scene, editing, effective low budget fx and queer demonic possession in mostly a single location. With this cast I suspect I will love his followup even if it’s a disaster.

That's good to hear, I hadn't heard of Luz but immediately rented it from my lib. The world needs Hunter Schafer's career to take off- this is such great news

Schrader is already preparing his next film The Master Gardener, with Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton, filming next year in the South.

Ozon's next film will be a remake/reworking of The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, though apparently it's titled Peter von Kant, stars Denis Ménochet as Fassbinder himself and Isabelle Adjani as, presumably, Petra. So given those details, I wonder if this will be a "behind the scenes" adaptation that also explores Fassbinder and Hermann's relationship?

Armageddon Time, James Gray's next feature, will start filming next month in NYC - in addition to the previously named cast, Anthony Hopkins is also in it, and Darius Khondji is lensing it
Production magazine synopsisShow
Queens, New York, the 1980s. 12-year-old Paul Graff is growing up in a warm and rowdy family that includes his grandfather, who encourages his artistic aspirations. His best friend is John Crocker, an African-American boy. The two are inseparable and prone to mischief, but after an incident in which John and Paul share "tea that makes you laugh," Paul's parents decide to transfer him to the private prep school his older brother Ted attends. Here, the student body is almost exclusively white, privileged, and prejudiced (it's also Donald Trump's alma mater). Together, the boys concoct a risky scheme to escape their lives and run away to Florida.

Not quite "in production," but I got to wondering what Darezhan Omirbaev has been up to since Student came out in 2012 (besides teaching at film school). Turns out he gave an interview in April where he revealed his next film will be an adaptation of the Hermann Hesse story "Autorenabend," relocated to Kazakhstan and addressing Omirbaev's fear that the Kazakh language might soon die out. Unfortunately the planned shoot was delayed by the coronavirus.
So this is called Poet and it premieres in November at the Tokyo International Film Festival, which is an... unexpected venue. There's an unsubtitled trailer on Youtube.

I'm not sure how I missed this, but Todd Haynes' long-gestating biopic of Peggy Lee is apparently back in pre-production, now titled Fever and with Michelle Williams attached (and Billie Eilish as a potential executive producer). This was a few months before Haynes announced his film with Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore, though, so it's unclear which of these will come first.

Haynes says Fever is going to shoot early next year, I don't know what the status of the Moore-Portman movie is but I imagine it isn't shooting before that.

David Gordon Green will direct all three films, following production on his third Halloween entry, and in all likelihood proceed to ruin another horror classic's serial
