As if Detroit hasn’t seen enough sadness and trouble over the last year, the feel-good indie filmmaker of the decade, Lars Von Trier (“The Kingdom,” Antichrist, Melancholia), is ready to bring his special brand of cinematic miseries to what once was the great motor city.
Indiewire recently put up a translation of an interview with Von Trier collaborator Kristian Levring from Soundvenue in which he reveals that he and Von Trier (pictured) are working on another film together.
“I’ve always thought that Lars would be able to do a fantastic horror movie,” Levring told Lise Ulrich at Danish magazine Soundvenue. “And I’ve told him so many times throughout the years, and in the end he said: ‘I want you to stop talking about it, so I’ll write it for you instead.’”
The flick has the working title of Detroit which may just stick. “It takes place in Detroit, and then there is the wordplay between Detroit and ‘destroyed.’”
Levring said that von Trier began writing the film about a month ago. “It’s about a man fighting his inner demons,” he said. “That doesn’t tell that much, but that’s because we haven’t gotten any further so far.”
“it’s real horror.,” he added. “Of course, there is a psychological aspect, but it’s a real horror movie. That’s what we’re aiming for, at least.”
