Director

“If you shot Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and shot them with a bunch of close-ups and a bunch of cuts, you would be depriving the audience of what these people can do.”

It'd be at once a waste of his talents and a great pleasure to see Hyams tackle an adaptation of some ultra-masculine, thematically loaded property like Halo.
