MELANCHOLIA - Lars von Trier (2011)



Danish auteur Lars von Trier's next feature film will be "Melancholia," a psychological drama-cum-disaster movie.

Budgeted at around E5 million ($7 million), English-lingo film is set for a European 2010 shoot. Casting of international cast is currently under way.

Title refers to Planet Melancholia, an enormous planet illustrated on the press release that looms threateningly close to Earth.

"No more happy endings!" commented Lars von Trier, who will direct from his own screenplay.

Though lead producer Zentropa Entertainment is not revealing more plot details, the film will not be an alien invasion movie, said Zentropa co-founder Peter Aalbaek Jensen.

"Melancholia," said Aalbaek Jensen, had "come together pretty quickly. Lars von Trier is really happy with the project." It will be produced by longtime von Trier producer Meta Louise Foldager and Louise Vesth ("Zoomers," "Crying for Love").

Zentropa aims to structure the film as a European co-production, using its regular co-production partners on von Trier movies in France, Germany, Sweden and Denmark, plus regular film funds and Eurimages coin, Aalbaek said.

"As a disaster movie, 'Melancholia' will use some special effects, but nothing compared to Hollywood," Aalbaek said.
What is this... a sci-fi porn movie...

Anti-Christ was over-hyped for it's over-the-top poitnless shock. I wonder what he'll be throwing in to this.
