Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow is set to make her return to direction with her newly announced Netflix-exclusive project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bigelow has agreed to helm a feature based on David Koepp’s upcoming novel Aurora. This will be Bigelow’s first project as a director since her last release, Detroit, released in 2017. Her only credit after Detroit is that of an executive producer for J.C. Chandor’s Triple Frontier, which was written by her longtime collaborator Mark Boal. Bigelow is known for some of the most acclaimed films of all time and is the first woman to win an Oscar in the Best Director category.
