Director J.C. Chandor Lines Up ‘Deepwater Horizon’

With Steven Soderbergh stepping away from the world of moviemaking, if you’re looking for a another filmmaker with his same spirit of exploration and productivity, J.C. Chandor seems to fit the bill. He hasn’t wasted a moment since breaking out with the talky, financial world drama “Margin Call.” He switched it up for his next movie, the nearly wordless survival tale “All Is Lost,” and Chandor already has his period-set immigration tale “A Most Violent Year" with Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in the can, with a release planned for this fall. But instead of taking a break, he’s lining up his next film.

Deadline reports that Chandor will take the helm of “Deepwater Horizon.” Can you guess what it’s about? Indeed, it’s based on the The New York Times article from Christmas Day, 2010, detailing the explosion on the oil rig that led to one of the biggest environmental disaster in United States history. But rather than playing the politics of the incident, Chandor’s film, that has a recent draft of the script by Matthew Michael Carnahan (“World War Z,” “State Of Play”), will focus on the 100 workers who were on board, trying to stop a bad event from getting worse.

Interview - All Is Lost For Director JC Chandor →

Matt: To quickly go back, Margin Call was released in early 2012 here in Australia and it was my 3rd favourite film of the year.  It premiered back at Sundance back in January 2011 and it propelled you all the way to an Oscar nomination.  When did you realise that the film was taking off?

J.C.:  That was quite an experience.  It was my first ever feature film and it was an amazingly slow build.  We took the film to the Sundance Film Festival not knowing what it was.  We were well received there but we certainly weren’t the darlings of the Festival that year.  Over the next 12 months, the film built up momentum until the point where I got an amazing treat with an Oscar nomination for writing.  I’ve been at it a long time and it’s been 10-15 years of struggle so 2011 was a pretty special year.
