‘One Hour Photo’ Director Mark Romanek Returns With Horror Movie ‘Mother Land’

Beyond a successful career in music videos, Mark Romanek directed three feature films: Static in 1985, One Hour Photo in 2002, and Never Let Me Go in 2010. But then, curiously enough, the feature film work from Romanek stopped coming. He’s continued to helm music videos and also directed an episode of the Amazon series Tales From the Loop last year, but Romanek’s movie work has been absent since 2010.

‘The Overlook Hotel’: Mark Romanek Provides Info on His Abandoned ‘Shining’ Prequel

HBO Max is moving forward with Overlook, a TV series spun-off from The Shining. But at one point we could’ve had a completely different piece of entertainment bearing the Overlook name.
