We heard David mention a few times during The Rover promo that he has a couple of things in the pipeline. He also mentioned that he was writing a script with Joel (it may have been at the post premiere Q&A at The State Theatre – I just remember filing it away but I can’t remember where I heard it). Stephanie Wood’s Sydney Morning Herald article “Joel Edgerton Hits The Hollywood Big Time” gives us a few little snippets about David:
“[Joel Edgerton] got quite an extraordinary magnetism and you just see the effect he has on people,” says actor Mirrah Foulkes from a hotel room in Cannes. Her partner, Animal Kingdom director David Michôd, leans briefly into the Skype call wearing only a towel. “Yeah, I love him, I’m still working with him after all these years.” The couple were in Cannes for the screening of Michôd’s new film, The Rover, based on a story that Michôd and Edgerton conceived together.
Foulkes reveals that her partner and Edgerton are co-writing another as-yet-under-wraps script for Warner Brothers. This is the Joel Edgerton whom most don’t know about: an ideas guy, a storyteller, a writer.”
*Happy claps* re the script. I’m just not going to focus on the “wearing only a towel” *gulps*
