Doesn't Penélope Cruz know I'm already in love with her? She really should stop trying so hard to win me.
According to some sources she went ahead and got the lead role in the next Lars von Trier movie.
If the rumors are true, and an official press release is revealed, she will star in "Melancholia" a psychological disaster movie in which Lars will get to destroy the planet while Pe battles some inner demons.
If it's anything like I'm imagining it to be (which of course will never do justice to the actual things von Trier comes up with) I'm guessing it will be more in the tone of Michael Haneke's "The Time of the Wolf" than "2012".
The plot is supposed to be centered on the destruction of Earth by the incoming collision with a planet called Melancholia.
Sigh, doesn't this just whisper Tarkovsky in your ears?
When asked about what to expect in the movie last year von Trier simply stated "no more happy endings!".
It's as if this movie's being made for me.
