Tim Robbins, eternally affable in the face of the fact that he will always be Andy Dufresne, is heading behind the camera for the first time since 1999’s Cradle Will Rock. He’ll direct City of Lies, an adaptation of an Arthur Phillips short story. Though Robbins has stayed away from feature directing since his trio of films in the nineties, he did direct a season-two episode of Treme and has another coming in season three.
