Edward Zwick

Between Martin Scorsese with Boardwalk Empire, Michael Mann with his upcoming series Luck, Tony and Ridley Scott with The Good Wife, David Fincher with his upcoming House of Cards, Steven Spielberg with too many upcoming projects to name, and an ungodly amount of smaller names that have directed various pilots, many filmmakers have been trying their hand at a smaller screen. While that’s great, it isn’t enough. So it’s time to discuss what other filmmakers would be suited well for the idiot box. Here are seven filmmakers that should try their hand at television.


Many wouldn’t expect Love and Other Drugs from director Edward Zwick. It’s fair to say that anyone who comes out of Glory, Defiance, or Blood Diamond wouldn’t say, “I bet this guy could make a hell of a romantic comedy.” But many, understandably, forget Zwick also directed About Last Night and Leaving Normal, so he’s not a man only dedicated to his historical epics.


We’re spending all week celebrating war movies. Today we learn what happens when a group of men who have been marginalized by their country fight for it.



Kevin Carr drags you kicking and screaming into the weekend with reviews of My Bloody Valentine 3D, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Notorious, Hotel for Dogs and Defiance.
