Michael Shannon is an amazing actor that has finally been getting the critical praise that he’s so rightfully deserved. He got a lot of attention in Jeff Nichols‘ Take Shelter and he can be seen next opposite of Henry Cavill in Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel.
It looks like he’ll be re-teaming with Nichols for another film, which is a “sci-fi chase film”, according to sources.
Nichols and Shannon recently worked together on Mud, with Shannon having a very small, but well-rounded role.
It’s nice to see a director and actor forming a strong relationship and working together over and over. It worked well for Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio and it seems to be fitting for Nichols and Shannon, because both have given us their top game when in the company of each other.
Any ideas as to what Nichols’ fourth movie is going to be about? Are you excited to see him working with Shannon again or do you dislike it when actors and directors work with the same people instead of branching off?
