Potentially we here have a film directed by Tony Scott and written by Richard Kelly (writer/director of Donnie Darko, one of my favourite films of last year. Kelly was about 26 when he made it, and I remain amazed beyond words by his precocity). Scott is a quality action director, although his brother Ridley is the great director of the family. (And there are a lot of directors in the family, including a couple of Ridley's sons). Just why it is that Tony can get extraordinarily talented young writer-directors to write stuff for him just as they are becoming famous, though, I am not sure. (The other example is of course "True Romance", which was an early script from Quentin Tarentino).

This sounds like fun.
