Kirsten Dunst, Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton.

Quote:
Nichols himself describes the project as a "sci-fi chase film," and names John Carpenter as a major influence on the script -- reinforcing the notion, established in "Mud," of Nichols as a kind of modern American classicist. The plot, still vaguely defined at this point, concerns a family man who goes on the run with his eight-year-old son when it becomes apparent the boy has superpowers.

Also interesting to note this will be Nichols first studio film.

Still need to see Mud, but I loved Take Shelter and Shotgun Stories, and this sounds really good.

Really? Did you not see Melancholia? Dunst is a more than solid actress.

I did not, no. She just irks me. And I usually don't say that about actors/actresses in films.

Bring it On is great, though

With you there, Spo. Never been a fan of her or Julia Stiles, both of whom I've always (probably quite unfairly) lumped together.

I never really care what millionaire they pay to recite lines. Nichols is the best new director and this will be at least good.

I really like what they said about him being a "modern American classicist." Seems like a very apt description of him.
