As the latest installment of Variety’s Actors on Actors comes to a conclusion, the focus will shift to directors taking a step from behind the camera and into the spotlight for Directors on Directors (they’re clearly not so clever about names over at Variety). This year’s pairings include actor/directors Ben Affleck and Michael B. Jordan who did double duty for Air and Creed III respectively, certifiable freaks Ari Aster and Yorgos Lanthimos and a $4 billion conversation between Greta Gerwig and James Cameron. The five “illuminating conversations between the most exciting filmmakers in the industry” kick off tomorrow, December 13th, and continue through the following week.
Variety won’t be the only place you can find Affleck either. Thanks to a deal between Warner Bros. Discovery and Fox streamer Tubi, DC Universe movies have another home amidst the constant shuffling at Max. The deal will see the Dunkin’ lover who donned the Batsuit in movies like Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey hitting Tubi’s on-demand lineup in 2024. It also includes DC’s slate of TV shows like Gotham and Batwoman, which are already available to watch on the ad-supported streamer.
