Todd Haynes is set to return behind the camera as director of Participant Media’s “Dry Run.” The movie marks the rare directorial effort from Haynes that he hasn’t developed himself. “Dry Run” is written by Matthew Carnahan, best known for creating television series such as “Dirt” and “House of Lies.” Mark Ruffalo is attached as producer and is considering starring in the drama, Variety reports.
Plot specifics about “Dry Run” are remaining under wraps for now, although the movie is described as being loosely based on the Du Pont family. The Du Ponts are one of the most famous and richest families in America, and their history dates back to the late 18th century when E.I. du Pont came to America and made a fortune as a gunpowder manufacturer. It’s unclear at this time whether or not “Dry Run” is a period piece focusing on an E.I. du Pont-inspired character.
