Paul Greengrass is Heading to 'Memphis'

Although he's best known for directing 'The Bourne Supremacy' and 'The Bourne Ultimatum,' Paul Greengrass' best films are undoubtedly 'Bloody Sunday' and 'United 93,' both of which take touchy and potentially controversial subject matter and craft humane, heartbreaking stories out of them. His talent for finding humanity in history makes his long-gestating 'Memphis' an exciting prospect -- it's hard to imagine another filmmaker more suited to exploring the final weeks of Martin Luther King Jr.'s life. After all kinds of delays, Deadline is reporting that 'Memphis' is just about ready to go and will be the filmmaker's next project.
