Zack Snyder to Direct THE LAST PHOTOGRAPH?
The Last Photograph sounds far outside Zack Snyder’s wheelhouse. The story centers on a journalist (Christian Bale) and an ex-special ops soldier (Sean Penn) who travel to war-torn Afghanistan to help a missing family member who’s been kidnapped. However, he came up with the idea for the story, 300 co-writer Kurt Johnstad wrote the script, Snyder was producing, and now it looks like he’ll direct. Twitch reports that Snyder has stepped in to replace Niels Arden Oplev (the Swedish adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and that Snyder will make The Last Photograph his follow-up to Man of Steel.
Lars Von Trier’s Next Film Entitled NYMPHOMANIAC; Shooting Slated for Summer 2012
Screen Daily spoke with Von Trier’s business partner and producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen who confirmed that Von Trier’s next project will very likely be Nymphomaniac. According to Jensen, the film will center around “the erotic life of a woman from the age of zero to the age of 50.” Per the report, the film will be shot in English and the filmmaker is planning two cuts. One will, as you may imagine, push the boundaries of censorship via graphic depictions of intercourse whereas the other will be tailored to play in “more mainstream cinemas.”
