Director Watchlist Update

Kenoncinema is all about the directors, really. Sorry other cast and crew, I love you too, but I love great directors. What can I say? Not just great directors, up-and-coming directors with something to prove. Those are fun too. Anyway, here's a necessary update of all my favorite directors and their upcoming projects. This update is a bit more thorough than previous ones.

Alexander Payne, next film: "Nebraska" 2013

Lars von Trier, next film: "Nymphomaniac"
