Five or six days ago An Education director Lone Scherfig told Notes on a Season‘s Pete Hammond that she “wants to break into action by doing a gangster movie” and is actually predicting it may happen. “Exploring the criminal mind is truly interesting and something I haven’t done,” she said. “I’m interested in someone more violent and more flawed.”

Earlier in the chat Scherfig spoke admiringly of Hurt Locker helmer Kathryn Bigelow “for breaking into territory most in the film industry think is reserved exclusively for men by doing a gritty action war film…I think she’s admirable and it means a lot to me that she does that because it’s important that it’s not so much about gender as it is about storytelling.”
