Obsessive Old Acquaintance

My, my – look at that Joel Edgerton, getting his director on.

The Aussie actor – who has been dipping his toes in the producer and writing pools for years – is making his debut as a feature film director this summer, with The Gift.

Yep, Edgerton called all the shots for the thriller, which stars Jason Bateman and Transcendence’s Rebecca Hall as a married couple that sees their lives turned upside down after he has a simple-enough casual run-in with an old high school mate that soon turns into a veritable s--- show creep fest.

The Jason Blum-produced The Gift is set to open on July 31.
