Veteran filmmaker Joel Schumacher, whose Nicole Kidman thriller "Trespass" opens Friday, will be joining us for a live online chat at 11 a.m. PDT on the day his film hits theaters.

The prolific writer-director, whose career has spanned nearly 40 years, premiered "Trespass" at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. In addition to Kidman, the home-invasion film stars Nicolas Cage, Cam Gigandet and Liana Liberato. In the film, a wealthy businessman and his family are taken hostage in their own home and attempt to fight back and try to turn the tables on their captors. 

Schumacher has been rather active the last few years. "Trespass" follows his 2010 film "Twelve" and his 2009 effort "Blood Creek." His film directing career began with the 1981 Lily Tomlin vehicle "The Incredible Shrinking Woman." He went on to make such noted films as 1985's "St. Elmo's Fire," 1987's "The Lost Boys," 1990's "Flatliners," 1993's "Falling Down" and 1995's "Batman Forever," among many others.  

To schedule a reminder for the chat, just fill out the form below. And be sure to join us Friday.
