Just when we thought Christian’s Birthday present from E L James was a floral shirt, see her outtake piece from yesterday. It turns out his real present was a day late and in the form of a female director, Sam Taylor-Johnson.
I’ll admit it, when I saw the name my first thought was, who? I don’t remember hearing her name come up in all the director talk in the past few months.
So, what is she known for directing? A couple short films: Misfit, Districted, Love You More, and James Bond Supports International Woman’s Day. She also directed Nowhere Boy a full length film about the childhood of John Lennon.
She’s also British, from Erika’s hometown of London. She’s a wife, mother, photographer and videographer. Her website is also, wicked cool!
I’ll have more on her in the next few days, there is apparently quite a bit out there about her; but I need a day or two to digest this news. My first impression? The movie will have an Indie Vibe to it.
