Will these filmmakers ever have time to shift gears again?
Franchises: "Pirates Of The Caribbean"
Mode he seems to be stuck in: I'm not sure who decided Rob Marshall is the guy who you hire to make a big event film, but they're not doing anyone any favors.
What's next: "Into The Woods," which seems like it's back in Marshall's comfort zone. Here's hoping they don't make the mistake of actually greenlighting his "Thin Man" remake with Johnny Depp, because (A) it'll destroy one of my favorite properties of all time and (B) Marshall's the wrong guy if coherent action and solid character work is what you're after. Just because Johnny Depp likes spending time with him doesn't mean he's the guy you trust for these films.
