William Monahan Writing/Directing Remake Of Becket

This news is almost a year old but it's still worth mentioning. Deadline reports that William Monahan's next directorial effort will be Becket based on the play by Jean Anouilh which he'll also write. Monahan is best known for writing the Departed which earned him an Oscar. I loved Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven which William wrote to see him revisit this genre is exciting. That being said Monahan's first film London Boulevard had a star-studded cast but was disappointing overall.
