In The Josh Marston Grip

Maria Full of Grace is one of the best debut films of all time, certainly the last ten or twenty years. Today, Variety have some updates on Josh Marston, the film's director - though perhaps unsurprisingly, many people are focusing on the JJ Abrams side of the story.

Marston pitched a new film to Abrams, who in turn took it to Paramount and set it up. Marston is to write the script and direct the film and all we know so far, really, is that it's a supernatural thriller. Cheers JJ - this project has got my attention far in a far tighter grip than any unnamed teaser trailer and cryptic website ever did.

Where this development leaves Marston's adaptation of Fortress of Solitude, I do not know.
