Jim Jarmusch Plans Next Project

Arthouse darling and somewhat overrated auteur Jim Jarmusch has lined up Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska to star in his next project according to an interview with the director himself at Pitchfork (via The Playlist).

There’s no title or story details as yet and financing isn’t quite locked, but he hopes to shoot the project early next year. The film would mark Swinton’s third time working with Jarmusch, while Fassbender and Wasikowska star together in the upcoming “Jane Eyre”.

Jarmusch is also planning a documentary on punk legends The Stooges but admits that film is “going to take a few years. There’s no rush on it.” He’s also planning a non-traditional opera about Nikolai Tesla with composer Phil Klein.
