Cameron Crowe has only managed to direct one film since Elizabethtown in 2005, but now that he’s released We Bought A Zoo, it seems he’s keen to ensure there’s not such a big gap until his next movie.
Recently it was revealed Emma Stone is attached to a comedic love story he’s working on, and now The Wrap reports he’s got two other films in the works. He’s taking on David Sheff’s best selling book Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction, blending it with the book told from the point of view of Sheff’s son David, Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines. As you can guess, it’s about a family dealing with their son’s drug problem.
Crowe is apparently also working on a project for HBO called Telegraph Avenue, which is based on the upcoming novel by Michael Chabon. It isn’t clear if Crowe is writing, directing or just producing that project. Both of these will comes after the Emma Stone movie though, which he plans to make next.
