Matt Dillon will play a serial killer in Lars von Trier’s next film “The House That Jack Built”. Bruno Ganz is also onboard in the key role of a mysterious figure named Verge, who engages Jack in a recurring conversation about his actions and thoughts.
The story follows the highly intelligent Jack, from his point of view, over a span of twelve years and introduces the murders that define his development as a serial killer.
As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he takes greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork. Four prominent female supporting roles will be announced soon.
Shooting will take place in Trollhattan, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark.
