What better way to follow up Man of Steel than a drama starring Christian Bale and Sean Penn? Originally director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) was attached to direct The Last Photograph but it looks like he’s out and Zack Snyder is in.
Twitch is reporting that Snyder has now stepped in place of Oplev and will be directing The Last Photograph right after Man of Steel. Snyder actually co-wrote the film as well as being a producer.
This is really good and interesting news. Snyder is obviously known for his visual style and I really think a drama like this could be a perfect way for him to branch out into something different. He’s being doing similar projects as of late and they haven’t really been panning out for him. Maybe this new project is exactly what he needs? A character driven drama with two excellent leads!
The film has been lingering around since 2007 with talent coming on and going off the project, so let’s hope this news of Snyder sticks.
The Last Photograph is currently scheduled for a release sometime in 2013.
A drama about two men and the photograph that inspires them to travel to war-torn Afghanistan.
