David Michod Adopts The Rover
More crime for Animal Kingdom's director

David Michod Adopts The Rover

After plugging away for years with shorts and other jobs, director David Michôd burst onto the wider cinematic scene in 2010 (though it arrived over here last year) with excellent rites-of-passage thriller Animal Kingdom. We’ve been waiting to see what he’d do next, feature-wise, and he’s locked in his follow-up directing job, The Rover.

While Michôd will write and direct, the idea for the movie came from an idea he put together with Kingdom star Joel Edgerton, who's no slouch in the scribbling department either.

While few details have leaked yet, Variety did learn that the story will follow a man hunting for his stolen car, which he desperately wants back because of what’s lurking within it. So a crime spin on Dude, Where's My Car? then?

Though he hasn’t picked up the megaphone himself since Kingdom, Michôd’s kept busy, co-writing the short film Bear with Joel’s brother Nash Edgerton, which won acclaim at this year’s Sundance Fest. He’s also scheduled to contribute a piece of portmanteau pic Sydney Unplugged.
