Variety reports that the directing team behind The Deep End--Scott McGehee (the gay one) and David Siegel (the straight one)--will make The Bee Season at Fox Searchlight. The pair had previously committed to direct The Hot Zone for 20th Century Fox but ditched it and made a beeline to Season when they realized that the latter project was more in line with their sensibilities. Season tells the story of how a family unravels as the 11-year-old daughter becomes a national spelling champion.
