The great Peter Weir

I love Peter Weir. Let me rephrase that, I love his movies. I haven't actually met the man, but his body of work is nigh on impeccable. The Cars That Ate Paris. The Last Wave. Picnic At Hanging Rock. Witness. The Truman Show. Gallipoli. The man's a cinematic god in my book. But Weir's also meant to be picky with his projects, having last directed Master And Commander in 2003. Well, now he's back. With The Way Back and I couldn't be more delighted.

This is awesome news. I'm not too wild about the premise but I'm sure in Weir's more than capable hands it'll be something special.

Criminally under-employed, this man. I really enjoyed MASTER & COMMANDER & only wish the rest of the world did too, then perhaps we would have seen Weir return sooner with another chapter for Cptn. Aubrey & Dr. Maturin. The scene on the Galapagos was stunning-like astronauts landing on an alien planet.

Bettany looks to playing a similar role as Darwin next.
