Solondz’s Happiness Sequel A Go

Werc Werk Works will fully finance and produce writer-director Todd Solondz’s next film, an untitled part-sequel, part-companion piece to his controversial dark comedy “Happiness” says Variety.

Solondz wrote the screenplay, which revolves around a group of individuals struggling to find a place for themselves in an unpredictable and volatile world.

The narrative is told through a series of intersecting love stories; the past haunts the present and imperils the future: ghosts circle and loom, trouble and console.

Emma Thompson, Demi Moore and Paul Reubens have been rumored to be attached over the years. Shooting begins in October in San Juan and casting is currently under way.
