Long time 24 director Jon Cassar has announced on his Twitter account that he will be directing an episode of CBS hit new drama series Person of Interest. An exact air date is currently unknown, but it will be one of the first episodes of the upcoming second season (which is scheduled to premiere in September).
Series star Jim Caviezel had previously described the show as “24” meets “Bourne Identity” and revealed that Kiefer Sutherland inspired him to take the role.
Cassar will begin filming his episode next month.

My own personal first choice for director would still be Jon Cassar, if not, then Joe Carnahan (‘Narc’, ‘The Grey’), and if not him, then Stephen Hopkins, who’s really a natural choice when you think of it, he was part of the series’ inception, helped come up with some of that show’s visual trademarks (the split-screen was his idea), was the lead director of Season 1 and got awards for it, and has extensive feature film experience into the bargain.
Give Hopkins a $40m budget, a thirteen-week production (amounting to about 72 days of filming), and shoot the film digitally (on the Arri Alexa, which has a more film-like look to it than other digital cameras) which would save nearly $2m in film and processing costs, and have it released early February 2014…
