Jonathan Demme's next projects in line

Many movie pundits felt that famed director Jonathan Demme was finally back on track with 2008's Rachel Getting Married that garnered his lead actress Anne Hathaway her first Oscar nomination, after the last decade or so of somewhat average to below films like The Manchurian Candidate remake, The Truth About Charlie and Beloved recieving mixed reviews at best.
Demme who is known best for directing his back to back Oscar winning/nominated films The Silence Of The Lambs and Philadelphia, now has two interesting projects in the works. The first being a Bob Marley documentary, simply titled Marley, which is set for release this year and then he has expressed interest in adapting the 2006 David Eggars novel Zeitoun, about a man who stays in his home during the Hurricane Katrina floods and makes it through the storm to lend aid in a second hand raft to those that need it. Zeitoun is currently in the very beginning of the in production stage.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
