Today is turning out to be a real good day to be a fan of hip, attractive young directors with impeccable taste in music. Earlier we brought you the news that Sofia Coppola has been tapped to bring a real-life version of The Little Mermaid to the big screen, and now comes word that Cary Fukunaga, the most talked about filmmaker of 2014, has officially signed on to his next project. A few months ago, the common reaction would have been, “Cary Fukuwho? But that was in a pre-True Detective world, and Fukunaga, who directed all eight episodes of HBO’s supernova crime drama, has since become one of the most in-demand directors in Hollywood. (It does not hurt that he is very, very handsome.) According to Deadline, the project is a WWII spy thriller called Noble Assassin, about Robert de la Rochefoucauld, a French aristocrat who trains under British Special Operations in all methods of baddassery to then sabotage the Nazi occupation of his homeland. Now, call this a hunch, but we’re guessing this is going to be very, very good.
