Robert Zemeckis to direct The Corrections
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Rudin might have finally found a director for the screen adaptation of Jonathan Franzen's novel "The Corrections." According to sources, Rudin is eyeing Robert Zemeckis, who most recently directed The Polar Express.
While Zemeckis' publicist Paul Bloch was unavailable for comment Wednesday, a source in Zemeckis' camp said he is interested in the book. Paramount -- where Rudin is based -- Zemeckis' company ImageMovers and his agency CAA all declined comment. Zemeckis most recently signed on to direct Beowulf for Columbia Pictures.
