John Hurt the Next to Suffer From a Case of Melancholia

The end of the world is here for director Lars von Trier and his new doomsday epic, Melancholia, as the man has assembled quite a cast to usher in Armageddon including one last very big name!

According to The Hollywood Reporter the legendary John Hurt has signed on to join the previously announed Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist), Kiefer Sutherland (Lost Boys, Mirrors), Charlotte Rampling (Angel Heart), Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”), Stellan Skarsgard (Exorcist: The Beginning), and Udo Kier (Suspiria).

The film’s title refers to Planet Melancholia, an enormous planet that looms threateningly close to Earth. “No more happy endings!” commented Lars von Trier in an earlier story, who will direct from his own screenplay.

Look for more soon!
