It screened at the UK's FrightFest this weekend. Looking at the immediate Twitter responses it seems to be a definite love it or loathe it prospect, albeit with the majority falling in the latter category.

I'm holding out for the truly terrifying third film - The Wicker Chair!

Richard Linklater is shooting his next movie "College Republicans" in Austin in November. It's apparently about a young Karl Rove. (With Paul Dano attached to star). Script rated very high on The Black List.

You have to feel sorry for Linklater. Bernie picked up decent reviews at the LA Film Fest but only got picked up by some new small indie outfit that doesn't have any distribution experience. Could end up being another botched release like "Me and Orson Welles".

Charlie Sheen to star in a movie that would sound interesting were it not for Charlie Sheen. It's a shame, I liked CQ and Roman's work on The Darjeeling Limited, and you'd think Schwartzman would have better things to do.

I don't know, Hot Shots was good. The guy may be crazy, but he still can probably give a good performance.

Video of Malick at work. Unremarkable, yet something I never expected to see.

Can anyone spot Emmanuel Lubezki in the pics or the video? I'm curious if he and Malick will be collaborating again.

Manoel de Oliveira has started shooting "Gebo et l´Ombre" (Gebo and the Shadow) in Paris, starring Michel Lonsdale, Claudia Cardinale, Jeanne Moreau, Leonor Silveira, Ricardo Trepa and Luis Miguel Cintra. Camera: Renato Berta. Aiming for showings at Berlin or Cannes in 2012. Based on a play (1923), "O Gebo e a Sombra", by Portuguese playwright Raul Brandao.

Lonsdale and Cardinale replace the unavailable Michel Piccoli and Ludivine Cleric, according to Luís Urbaino of co-producing company O Som e a Furia.

In June/July, Portuguese online sites reported briefly that Oliveira will also do a film (a short film, presumably) on buildings created worldwide by the architect Alvaro Siza Vieira.

Holly Motors is an upcoming French film written and directed by Leos Carax. It will star Denis Lavant as a man who travels between multiple parallel lives. It will be Carax's first feature film since 1999.

Production
Prior to the production of Holly Motors, Leos Carax had for five years tried to fund a big English-language film. As financiers were reluctant to invest, Carax, whose last feature film was Pola X from 1999, decided to make a smaller French-language production first, with the aim to regain prominence in international cinema. Holly Motors is produced through Pierre Grise Productions for a budget of 3.9 million euro, including money from the CNC, Île-de-France region, Arte France, Canal+ and Ciné+. The film is a 20% German co-production through the company Pandora, and received 350,000 euro from the Franco-German co-production support committee.

Principal photography is located to Paris. Filming started 1 August and is scheduled to end 27 September 2011.

Also starring Kylie Minogue and Edith Scob and lensed by Caroline Champetier (Of Gods and Men).

The October issue of the Swedish magazine ”Film” has an interview with Roy Andersson, plus a DVD which among other things includes three clips from his forthcoming films: “A Dove Sat on a Branch and Pondered Its Existence”. The title is a reference to a painting by Bruegel. In the interview he talks a bit about the film, about comedy, and film and art in general. He isn’t sure that he is a comedian, but says he probably views death in a different way than many others, and by showing this in scenes with long takes in this film, it becomes humorous.

In the interview Andersson says that he has been heavily influenced by Fellini. If it wasn’t for Fellini, Andersson might be working as a painter instead. But Fellini taught him the richness of abstraction. Refining things to illustrate life, and exaggerating. He goes on to say this is especially true of a film like “And the Ship Sails On”.

Andersson says he probably is doing films, hoping they will help people being humble. (It’s a Swedish interview but he does use the English word “humble”.) And last in the interview he points out one film that he really doesn’t like, that he finds false: “Silence of the Lambs”.

Lots more in the interview. Maybe someone else is up to translating it. The new film should hopefully be ready in 2012. I don’t know if the clips are posted on the internet. If not, and anybody wants to see them, send me a pm.

That's interesting. Is there not a Swedish equivalent for humble?

He says an aim with his films might be to make people "nice and friendly towards each other, and respectful. There is a good word for it in English: humble".

All joking aside, I'm glad to see Mr. Green moving back into somewhat more serious territory after after voluntarily tarnishing his once-spotless reputation over the past few years. :| While I saw "Pineapple Express" and ended up giving it the benefit of the doubt, I just could not bring myself to see "Your Highness" and I'm sure as hell going to skip "The Sitter" as well.

Ethan Hawke to don a goatee once more.

Not sure how it will live up to that beautiful ending, but this is good news in my books.

Look forward to it, but it feels unnecessary after Sunset, whose title and ending gave a sense of finality to the series.

2012 looks extremely promising. Off the top of my head, we're scheduled to get films from: Terrence Malick, Paul Thomas Anderson, Abbas Kiarostami, Michael Haneke, Terence Davies, Wong Kar-wai, Olivier Assayas, Wes Anderson, Steven Soderbergh, Francis Ford Coppola, Alfonso Cuarón, David Cronenberg, Andrew Dominik, Spike Lee, Jonathan Glazer, Christopher Nolan, Steven Spielberg, Tony Gilroy, David O. Russell, John Hillcoat, Kathryn Bigelow, Quentin Tarantino, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Béla Tarr, The Dardennes, Ridley Scott, Andrea Arnold, Richard Linklater, Fernando Meirelles, William Friedkin, Whit Stillman, Walter Salles, Joe Wright, Julia Loktev, Yorgos Lanthimos, Ben Affleck, Rian Johnson, Peter Jackson, Ang Lee, Baz Lurhman, and, as always, Woody Allen.

Some of these have already had festival screenings or have opened in their countries of origin, but will get their U.S. commercial debuts next year.

Even the summer movies coming out will (in some cases, already are) have us talking.

I can vouch for the greatness of the new Dardenne bros. film. Also, don't forget Studio Ghibli's wonderful Arrietty, which will finally be coming to the U.S. in a couple months.
