Field last directed the 2006 Kate Winslet–Patrick Wilson drama Little Children, which I rewatched just a few weeks ago with my brother and sister-in-law, who loved the film’s observations of suburban culture, particularly with regard to the playground moms. It’s kind of crazy to think that Field has made a film since then, especially given the fact that Little Children brought him and author Tom Perrotta an Oscar nomination for adapted screenplay, but I know he’s suffered the cruel slings and arrows of development in the interim.
Collider first told you that Daniel Craig had agreed to play Rawbone in Field‘s adaptation of The Creed of Violence, but it seems like that project has been pushed in the wake of Netflix‘s megadeal for two imminent sequels to Knives Out, so it makes sense that he’s moving on and focusing on TAR.
In addition to Borderlands, Blanchett will soon be seen in Guillermo del Toro‘s Nightmare Alley and the Oscar-winning director’s Pinocchio movie, as well as in Adam McKay‘s star-studded Netflix movie Don’t Look Up. Blanchett recently picked up a pair of Emmy nominations for her work on the acclaimed FX limited series Mrs. America.
