Few films have divided the Dread Central staff like the Funny Games remake did, but one thing we all agreed on was how great its two young co-stars, Michael Pitt and Brady Corbet, were. Apparently we’re not alone as Belgian director Fabrice Du Welz (Calvaire, Vinyan) has tapped Corbet for the lead in his next project, which is tentatively entitled More.
Shooting begins in March, 2010, and according to Twitch Film, Corbet’s part is described by Du Welz as “truly a breakout role. He’s a bright young actor, full of potential. As soon as I met him, I had a strong feeling.” More is the director’s second English-language film (after Vinyan) but marks his first US production.
As for More‘s storyline, it’s a dark psychological thriller set in downtown New York. [According to Du Welz] the movie is “another exploration of the world of madness.” [It was] penned by 22-year-old newcomer Zachary Wigon [and] is being produced by Alex Mar and Nicholas Shumaker of New York- and Florida-based Empire 8 Productions, in conjunction with Michael Gentile of Paris-based The Film.
