David Gordon Green
david gordon green is potentially my favorite director; i say potentially because i've only seen two of his films (george washington and the illustrious all the real girls). rumor had it that he was going to direct the film adaptation of the confederacy of dunces, starring, strangely enough, will ferrell. supposedly that's now fallen through. however, green has committed to directing the secret life of bees. i was only a lukewarm fan of the novel, but i have high hopes of what green can do with the material. his specialty is a particularly languorous version of the south; i'd love to see him wrestle with the plucky, quick-witted, and overtly feministy characters of sue monk kidd's creation.
