Mann off to WWII

10.05.2009

Say what you will about PUBLIC ENEMIES, I'm still looking forward to Michael Mann's next film. Some people love ENEMIES and some people (like me) just couldn't connect with it on any level. It's a shame because I was really looking forward to it. But just like that, I'll be looking forward to his next film. Variety is reporting that film could be a biopic of WWII photographer Robert Capa and his relationship with fellow photographer (and lover) Gerda Taro. You might not know Capa's name but I'm sure you know some of his work. He actually swam to shore with the US troops at the invasion of Normandy Beach and his photos of D-Day are still the most striking (even considering that handfuls of his rolls from that day were ruined in the darkroom).

Mann has been trying to get a Capa film off the ground for a while and to help get this going, it has been described as a "low-budget, gritty" type film. Jez Butterworth, who caught Mann's eye with his James Brown biopic script, is writing the Capa script based on the biography "Waiting for Robert Capa."

Extra Tidbit: Capa romanced Ingrid Bergman after his wife's death but never remarried.

WWII

This sounds great! I'm a photograper myself and this sounds excelent. I think people can get sick of WWII movies like they can get sick of anything, but complain more about all the remakes. This war has SO many amazing stories - If a filmmaker finds his story he can't wait on it until the guys at JoBlo are ok with it because someone else will make his story. This is going to be a different kind of WWII movie, no Nazis. Read about Capa on wikipedia, great story.

Why is everyone saying "another WWII movie??". Did you not read that it's about a photographer in WWII?? Sounds pretty sick to me.

One of my fave directors

I have faith in whatever he does, Vice was just okay though story wise. The digital filmmaking is his thing now and he does it to absolute perfection an I love it. For a review of Public Enemies that may make you change your mind check out [link]

Can we lay off the WWII movies for a few years? Take a shot at WWI, the Korean War, hell, even the Crimean War for a change.
