After over two decades as a cinematographer, including work on seven of Christopher Nolan’s eight films, and four Academy Award nominations (along with his first win for Inception last year), Deadline is reporting that Wally Pfister is set to make his directorial debut on an untitled project for Alcon Entertainment. Company co-founders Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove issued the following statement:
We have been talking to Wally about making his directorial debut with Alcon for over a decade since we all worked together on ‘Insomnia’. Wally is truly one of the most talented artists with whom we have ever collaborated. To now have the opportunity to work with Wally as a director on this truly remarkable project, is a company highlight for Alcon Entertainment.
The film, scripted by newcomer Jack Paglen, is currently without any details, but remains an exciting prospect nonetheless.
