Michael Mann to Return to Directing With Chris Hemsworth-Starring Cyber Thriller

By  · Published on February 15th, 2013

Now this is a great cinema-related Valentines’s Day Gift. Variety reports that director Michael Mann is returning to feature films after almost four years away from the big screen (his last directorial outing was with 2009’s Public Enemies) with a new untitled thriller. Mann is attached to direct the film for Legendary Pictures from his own script, which he has reportedly been working on for over a year with co-writer Morgan Davis Foehl (an editor-turned-scribe who is also writing the Mass Effect film for the studio). Still better? Chris Hemsworth is already attached to star in the new project.

Details on the feature are predictably slim, but the outlet does pass on that it “takes place in a world of cyber threats and attacks.” Someone tell me this is the The Net remake we’ve all been begging for.

Now let’s all go celebrate VD in the traditional way – by watching Collateral and marveling at Tom Cruise’s steely gaze (and hair).
