Lars Von Trier is prepping ‘Melancholia’, and sci-fi “psychological disaster movie” and is apparently about a large planet that appears dangerously close to Earth.
Do not go panicking that he is doing a FX spectacular. Expect something smaller with good use of effects (a la: ‘District 9’) and a hell of a lot of human turmoil.
Von Trier's only word so far is that we can expect "no more happy endings".
Have we even had one?
He has done drama, musical, comedy, horror, now sci-fi. All that is left is animation, rom-com and western.
Would love to see a Von Trier animation or rom-com.
