Brad Anderson

After directing a few unique psychological thrillers like The Machinist and Transsiberian, filmmaker Brad Anderson is continuing his passion for interesting dark mysteries as Variety reports he'll next direct Jack, a script written by David Venable about a serial killer with amnesia who falls in love with his doctor as his memories begin to surface, forcing him to decide whether to start with a clean slate, or give in to his killer instincts. Memory loss is something Anderson has toyed with before in the mystery surrounding Christian Bale in The Machinist, but the serial killer angle lends a new twist to what feels like a familiar plot device.

In addition to those two aforementioned films, Anderson has immersed himself in TV recently, taking on even more mystery by directing a handful of episodes of "Fringe," and is currently in post-production on another intriguing project, Vanishing on 7th Street. Producer Brian O'Shea praises the director, saying "Jack is an incredibly commercial thriller, laced with tension and suspense, so it's important to have the right director to bring those aspects to life. Brad Anderson has a unique psychological intensity that will make for a memorable theatrical experience." Sounds like not booking the directing gig for Paranormal Activity 2 will allow for a much more interesting film from Anderson next. Anybody else intrigued?
