Controversial Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier is readying the English-language TV series “The House That Jack Built”. Von Trier will start working on the script this autumn with shooting currently set for 2016.
The series will be the first the “Antichrist” and “Nymphomaniac” auteur has directed since the original acclaimed Danish series “The Kingdom” two decades ago.
Producer Louise Vesth revealed the project at the Venice Film Festival where Von Trier’s regular producer Peter Aalbaek Jensen added that it will be “a TV series without precedent… a TV series as you have never seen it before and never will again. You better hold your breath.”
