Jane Eyre Director Cary Fukunaga Stuns With East African Short Film
After Sin nombre and his haunting version of Jane Eyre, director Cary Fukunaga counts as a filmmaker who we’d follow virtually anywhere. That even means East Africa, where Fukunaga took musician/actress Haley Bennett to shoot the short film Sleepwalking in the Rift, a clip commissioned by the high-end fashion brand Maiyet.
The short film was posted over on Nowness.com, and it’s well worth a look:
While I love the clip, I’d prefer Fukunaga could move on to his next feature-length film. We reported months ago that he was attached to direct an adaptation of Stephen King’s seminal horror novel It for Warner Bros., though we haven’t heard anything new on that front when it comes to casting or location scouting. Several filmmakers are circling King projects at the moment, though It is one that we’d love to see made, and with the moodiness Fukunaga can bring to any project … as Rift proves.
