Two weeks ago, we asked if you were into True Detective director Cary Fukunaga yet.  How about now? Deadline reports Fukunaga will direct Noble Assassin from a Scott Silver (The Fighter) script. An adaptation of an unpublished Paul Kix novel, the film will tell the story of a French aristocrat during WWII, who secretly trains under British Special Operations Executive with the intention of returning to his home country and leading a resistance. No word on when the film will start shooting or what hairstyle Fukunaga will have for the shoot.
