Danish filmmaker Kristian Levring says he's penning a horror film for director Lars Von Trier. The latter saw the release of Nymphomaniac – a two-part sex-fueled epic – Levring, meanwhile, directed The Salvation.
In a report at Soundvenue, Levring says that he always thought Von Trier would excel at doing a horror film (although Von Trier gave us The Kingdom and Antichrist), so he told the director he would write one for him. Courtesy of IndieWire:
"It takes place in Detroit, and then there is the wordplay between Detroit and 'destroyed,' " Levring added, noting that von Trier has started writing the script. "It’s about a man fighting his inner demons. That doesn’t tell that much, but that’s because we haven’t gotten any further so far." He added "….it’s real horror. Of course, there is a psychological aspect, but it’s a real horror movie. That’s what we’re aiming for, at least."
The whole "Detroit" sounds like "destroyed" thing cracks me up. We'll see if this one takes off and, if it does, we'll be all over it.
