With 2016 drawing to a close, and anticipation for the crop of films coming next year and the year after that, few sound more intriguing than Lars Von Trier’s new project starring Matt Dillon and titled The House that Jack Built. Production will probably start sometime next year, and many of the roles in the film have yet to be cast, but for now we can enjoy a new teaser poster as we wait.

The musical never completely died as a movie genre, but it did lay dormant for a good long while throughout the 1980s and ’90s, with only the occasional throwback like Pennies From Heaven, Newsies, or Everyone Says I Love You popping up, like an old memory. Back then, the movie business largely conceded its tradition of song-and-dance to Disney cartoons and MTV, assuming — wrongly — that the idea of flesh-and-blood actors breaking into big numbers in the middle of narrative feature films had become too cornball for the modern mass audience.

Lars von Trier has made a career out of exploring the darkest elements of the human psyche. From the internal chaos of depression, the self-loathing of grief and guilt, and the aching desires of sexual dependency, the Danish filmmaker never hesitates to dive into some of the most disturbing and agonizing crevices of the human condition in an attempt to understand them. It makes sense then that von Trier’s next project will look inside the disturbed mind of a serial killer.

In the past, von Trier would drink an entire bottle of vodka a day to “enter a ‘parallel world’ necessary for creation.” Without it, he fears that all he could make are “sh---y films.” His most recent work, ‘Nymphomaniac,’ was produced sober—but incredibly slowly; it took 18 months to write the screenplay. In contrast, the script for ‘Dogville’ was produced in a “12-day drug binge.” (Things go quicker when you don’t have to describe sets or locations because the entire movie is shot on a blank stage.)

It's the final day of Fantastic Fest and only about two dozen other people were crazy enough to show up.

That's no typo: this movie is literally five and a half hours long
