This news is a couple days old and normally I wouldn't find this post material, but French composer Alexandre Desplat is reteaming with director Stephen Frears to score Florence Foster Jenkins. This guy just won the Academy Award for scoring The Grand Budapest Hotel, and has seven additional nominations, including for The Queen and Philomena. I just enjoy when Meryl's films include the best filmmakers.
This is a good opportunity to reiterate how nice it is that Meryl has joined forces with some great directors over the past two years. Say what you may about Rob Marshall, but Into the Woods was highly effective. Jonathan Demme and Frears's credentials are well-known, and we know Meryl would have probably wrapped Master Class by now with Mike Nichols at the helm. Based on the trailers, Sarah Gavron is also getting a lot of buzz for Suffragette. Makes me more excited for the possibility of who might direct The Good House if it happens. Which it better.
