Who should direct 'Napoleon' if Steven Spielberg doesn't?
We review some potential helmers who could do Kubrick right
Don't laugh. Hooper is suffering a bum rap from "The Social Network" obsessives and "Les Misérables" detractors as of late, but his work on the post-French Revolution musical already dabbled in these waters somewhat so perhaps he'd be up to staying with it. Then again, maybe he's ready to move on. The point is, there's a bit of cross-over here and he could handle it. If there are still nay-sayers, I haven't even gotten to Hooper's proven adeptness in the world of television: "John Adams" sure worked out.
