'Lincoln Lawyer' director looks ahead to next film

March 11, 2011 |  1:33 pm

Brad Furman, who helmed the legal thriller "The Lincoln Lawyer," opening next Friday, says one of his next projects will be directing "Intricate." Inspired by a true story, "Intricate" tells of a highly touted college basketball recruit who gets involved in the drug underworld after his hoops career doesn't pan out. At the time, the New York narcotics trade is rife with violence and connections to the burgeoning rap industry.

"The movie is about where this man begins and where he ends, with New York City as an important character," Furman said.

Furman said earlier this week that he was working on the project with Protozoa Pictures, the production banner of "Black Swan" producer Scott Franklin and director Darren Aronofsky. Furman said the duo would produce "Intricate." Franklin said Friday that he had given Furman notes and introduced him to a screenwriter. Franklin added it was possible he might godfather or produce the film as it moved forward but that the project was at an early stage with no formal roles cemented. A spokeswoman for Aronofsky said Friday he was not involved with "Intricate." Furman declined to further comment Friday.

An earlier post provided incorrect details about the project.

Looks like an interesting concept for his next film. From what I have heard, his upcoming film "The Lincoln Lawyer" also seems to use the setting, Los Angeles, as more than just a location, but also as a part of the story. Will be interesting to see these films. Thanks!
