WITH THE continuing success of Bringing Down the House, out director Adam Shankman joins six other openly gay directors on the list of the 250 all-time top-grossing films in the United States. (Joel Schumacher actually has three films on the list.) Sorry, closeted gay directors not included.

Of course, none of these movies is about gay subject matter, but it's always good to have something to strive for in the future.
