Alan Turing Film The Imitation Game Gets a Director
We shouldn't get terribly excited, as the film has a history of starting to almost kind of be made with people being attached, before the house of cards flutters down again. But if we can't get prematurely excited on the Internet about rumors and hearsay, then where can we?
Black Bear has brought on Morten Tyldum, who in addition to having a glorious name that would feel at home wielding an ax in Middle Earth, also directed last year's fantastic Headhunters.
There is no word yet on anything else. No actors or release date. But Graham Moore, writer of the script, is also going to be the executive producer. I choose to believe that this is a good thing, that the writer in the driver's seat bodes well for the film's narrative.
