No, but I have to admire the risk. I mean, they could get Michael Mann but that's like asking for no surprises, just a paint-by-numbers movie. (And I say this because I like Michael Mann and he did a fine movie that dealt with corporate malfeasance among other things in The Insider.)

It's as if Haynes is deliberately forcing himself not to go back to any of the themes and motifs that have made his work interesting thus far (queerness, taboo desire, pastiche, lush period decor, female glamour, etc.). Maybe there's an experimental twist to this somewhere? (Maybe it'll be like Safe?) It all sounds dreadfully boring but I'll try and stay open-minded...
