Jeff Nichols working with 'Memento' producer, possibly Chris Pine, on next movie

Chris Pine
Jeff Nichols' latest film, "Take Shelter," debuted at Cannes yesterday. I haven't been able to find much about how it was received, but there is news from the festival: Nichols and long time Christopher Nolan producer Aaron Ryder and Terrence Malick producer Sarah Green will work together on Nichols' next film, "Mud." "Star Trek" star Chris Pine is in talks to star.

Here's how the LA Times describes it:

Nichols' new movie will center on two 14-year-boys who come across an adult fugitive of the law, the titular Mud (who would be played by Pine) and must help him escape off an island in the Mississippi. The ambiguity of the story lies with Mud, who is both an unsavory and a redemptive character and who teaches the boys as much as he learns from them.

The riverside setting and coming-of-age motif will inevitably draw comparisons to Huckleberry Finn, though the film will be set in the contemporary world.
