Has Anna Wintour scared him off the industry? The September Issue documentary filmmaker R.J. Cutler's next project doesn't have anything to do with fashion. According to Variety, Cutler's on board to direct a film based on Melissa de la Cruz's young-adult novel The Au Pairs—a book about three girls who spend the summer in the Hamptons taking care of rich people's kids. From School Library Journal: "The Au Pairs offers wealth, status, steamy sex, lots of heavy drinking, changing values, and juicy fun" Not sure if that's just as frightening or even scarier than hanging out in the Vogue offices for three months.
