Shannon, Nichols up for fourth film

Michael Shannon is set to reunite with director Jeff Nichols for their fourth film.

The duo, who have worked together on all three of Jeff's previous big screen outings, have a fourth collaboration planned, according to Variety.

"We are heating up our fourth collaboration to happen in the winter," the actor teased.

Variety reported that the upcoming film would be a sci-fi chase movie set in the present day for Warner Bros, which could be Starman as it focuses on an alien who is being pursued by the US government.

Jeff teased that he is writing two scripts but declined to confirm which one it would be.

"I won't talk too much about it now, other than to say I kind of want to make a 1980s John Carpenter movie. If I had to choose one of those it would be Starman. Midnight Special is going to be a genre film put through whatever bizarre filter is me," he said.

Michael, who has starred in Jeff's films Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter and Mud, will next star as General Zod in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel and as serial killer Richard Kuklinski in The Iceman.
