"It's getting howly out there," says the Australian director David Michod, peering out at a torrential downpour that's pounding the southern coast of France.The stormy backdrop is fittingly portentous for Michod as he discusses his much-anticipated follow-up to the Oscar-nominated debut "Animal Kingdom". It took Michod four years to find his footing after the runaway success of 2010's "Animal Kingdom," a deliciously dark crime family saga that won critical acclaim, a record number of Australian Film Institute awards and an Academy Award nomination for co-star Jacki Weaver.The film announced Michod's arrival, with some calling him a Scorsese from Down Under. Michod, 41, wrote the lead specifically for Pearce, who was the lone established star in "Animal Kingdom". The movie brought international renown to the loose Aussie filmmaking collective dubbed Blue-Tongue Films, a group of which Michod and Edgerton are members."The Rover" may seem similar to other visions of bleak futures, but Michod says the film isn't about the post-apocalyptic genre.
