Lowdown: This picture hasn't even begun shooting yet, but the prestige star power of this thriller is eye-popping. Villeneuve shocked the international film community with his impressive drama "Incendies" and he's following it up with a thriller centered on a father who kidnaps the man he believes responsible for the disappearance of his daughter and her best friend. The cast features a future Oscar nominee (Jackman), three nominees (Gyllenhaal, Davis, Howard) and a winner (Leo). Whether it turns out to be the prestige/Oscar bait it appears is a side story. This director with this ensemble? Book it.
