No More Happy Endings for Lars von Trier, End of the World Coming!

Published

on

With Antichrist arriving this month from IFC Films, Danish auteur Lars von Trier’s (read our new interview) 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. The 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. “As a disaster movie, ‘Melancholia’ will use some special effects, but nothing compared to Hollywood,” exclaims Zentropa Entertainment co-founder Peter Aalbaek Jensen.

Co-founded Bloody Disgusting in 2001. Producer on Southbound, the V/H/S trilogy, SiREN, Under the Bed, and A Horrible Way to Die. Chicago-based. Horror, pizza and basketball connoisseur. Taco Bell daily.
