I'm intrigued by the synopsis of Gus van Sant's The Sea of Trees, which features Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe lost in a Japanese forest and searching for a way out. We could be working along Gerry lines here, only with a screenplay from thriller-writer Chris Sparling, who wrote Buried, which doesn't sound like too dissimilar a project, in fact. The very pretty-looking cinematography is from Kasper Tuxen - not a well-known name by any means, but I already know he's a talented DP, having seen Hateship Loveship. Part of the reason this project so intrigues me is the fact that Naomi Watts is in it, alas. With such a polished image available already for a film without a release date, I'm expecting either a Berlin or a Cannes bow for this next year.
