We've all been clamoring about what new TV show might replace LOST. Candidates include Alcatraz, The River, Cougar Town...but perhaps we've been going about this all wrong. Perhaps what we need...is a MOVIE.
Robert Redford has come to terms with this. A couple of months back, it was reported that he'd be involved in a film titled All Is Lost, which would pit the star in a survival story while stranded on the ocean. It is confirmed now that Redford will indeed be starring in this new adventure thriller, which will be directed by the man behind Margin Call, J.C. Chandor.
So, a fundamental, resounding "Yes!" is in order. Redford is getting back in the game in a big way, with this project and the in-development The Company You Keep, which he is starring in and directing. All Is Lost will be Chandor's second stint at writing/directing after the well-received takedown of the economy's plunge and those arguably responsible. And the ocean...well, the ocean has done us well in film before. Remember Jaws? Remember Titanic? Remember Cougar Town: The Straight-to-Video Deep Sea Adventure? Well, All is Lost promises to blow all of those movies out of the—no. That's too much.
