McQueen plans sec­ond film

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Last year, while pro­mot­ing Hunger, one of the films of the decade, Steve McQueen, till then best known for gallery-based art, cheek­ily com­mented that he wasn’t sure he would ever di­rect an­other fea­ture. Re­joice. It has now been an­nounced that McQueen is to helm a film on the in­com­pa­ra­ble Nige­rian mu­si­cian Fela Kuti.

Else­where in Gos­sip Gulch, news has emerged that Paul Thomas An­der­son is to di­rect Philip Sey­mour Hoff­man as a huck­ster who in­vents a re­li­gion in 1950s Amer­ica. Sound fa­mil­iar I won­der if John Tra­volta or Tom Cruise will be au­di­tion­ing (if you get my drift).
