'Crash' Director Paul Haggis To Direct Canadian Film 'Paris'

Paul Haggis will probably be forever tagged with his divisive Oscar-winning film Crash, despite the fact that he has had a hand in films that were quite well-receieved by most (he was part of the writing team for Casino Royale) and directed two films that are far less likely to create big reactionary emotions, In the Valley of Elah and The Next Three Days.

Now Haggis and his Crash co-writer Bobby Moresco are going to work together once more on a Canadian film called Paris.

THR calls the film a political drama, but that's just about all the detail we've got. No further plot description, and since this is in the early stages, no casting. Haggis and Bobby Moresco will be working as producers on the film, too, but the script is being penned by Dawn Kuisma. She previously made a documentary called After Iraq that looked at post-traumatic stress disorder in soldiers returning from Iraq. That was a companion piece of sorts to In the Valley of Elah, a film that should inspire more second looks than Crash.
