Vanishing on 7th Street (release date tbd, likely Fall 2010)

Try to ignore the fact that this stars Hayden Christiansen for a second and concentrate on the fact that it’s directed by Brad Anderson.  Anderson is one of those directors who has worked under the mainstream radar for years, starting with Next Stop Wonderland.  Pretty much every subsequent feature he’s directed has been flat-out amazing in one way or another, and he’s probably one of the top 10 directors working today in my humble opinion.  Happy AccidentsSession 9The MachinistTranssiberian.  Anderson is at his best when working with genre fare and finds a raw, emotional truth with his actors while utilizing a spare, naturalistic, low-budget style.  This past television season he also became one of the primary directors on Fox’s Fringe, putting out most of the series’ best episodes.  The end result is that his game seems to be at a whole new level, and he has more artistic freedom than ever to make the kinds of movies he makes best.
