Ever since he signed up last year to star and executive produce the movie Finding Forrester, Sean Connery along with Columbia has been searching for a director to helm the project. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he's persuaded Gus Van Sant to join the party.

The dream team combination of Connery and Van Sant must have studio executives salivating at the proposition.
