hasn’t directed a movie since the mildly underwhelming Public Enemies in 2009, and that's a shame. After all, we're talking the director who in the beginning of the 90s had a perfect run with The Last of the Mohicans, Heat and The Insider. Since then, he’s delivered mostly digitally shot high-quality "meh"s with Collateral being the exception.
Now, the filmmaker has a new project in the pipeline (which is already pretty stuffed with projects like Agincourt, Go Like Hell, The Big Stone Grid) and it seems like it could start filming fairly soon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mann is set to direct a yet untitled "cyberterrorism thriller", starring Norse Huntsman in a yet unspecified role.
While, personally, the word cyberterrorism (read: dudes sitting in front of computers) doesn't make me all that giddy with excitement, Mann has already proven that he can make pretty much every occupation brim with suspense (see: sending a fax in The Insider) so hopefully he’ll rise to old heights with this new (cyber)thrilling project.
