Gus Van Sant has reportedly been angling for the job, as well, so who knows, but Wright, 40, has ties with both Universal and Focus Features.

The director has helmed Anna Karenina, Hanna, Pride and Atonement, which features some major heat. The man can film a sex scene, people!

As for who he'd be filming, should he in fact land this major directorial role? That remains to be seen, but the speculation is off the charts as always.
