“The Help” director Tate Taylor circling next project?

By Sean O’Connell Director Tate Taylor, riding a wave of support and enthusiasm for the subtle character work he manages on “The Help,” is looking ahead to his next project and could be circling another period drama.

Taylor is looking at “Peace Like a River,” an adaptation of Leif Enger’s novel about an adolescent asthmatic and his oddball family. The story’s set in Minnesota in the early 1960s, and has criminal elements as well as a rescue-mission hook that could drive a narrative forward.

Sources close to the story tell THR that “Peace” is “not necessarily Taylor’s next picture,” and that he is “said to be sifting though several projects.”

Smart move. In this fickle industry, it’s uncertain whether Taylor ever will have such heat. This is an opportunity for him to make a movie he really wants to see made. And while his name is being attached to “Peace” because it’s a period movie with a larger-than-normal ensemble, you can see why the storyteller might be leaning a little toward, “Been there, just did that.”
