Filmmaker Lars von Trier seems to always court controversy with his films, partly because of his own personal demons but also his demanding work ethic which pursues his artistic vision to their furthest ends.
Now though it sounds like von Trier is considering giving up with a suggestion this past week at a press conference that his upcoming serial-killer film “The House That Jack Built” could be his last.
von Trier, who was reportedly visibly nervous and shaking during the event, says he hasn’t the stamina to make another film:
“I feel like s–t. I have so much anxiety. I think I’m getting too old for this. Just to work on the set and rush around with some actors, even though they are very sweet, it is a challenge of dimensions. I don’t think I can make any more films after this one.”
Matt Dillon, Riley Keough, Sofie Grabol, Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, and Siobhan Fallon Hogan star in ‘Jack’ which is currently in production and is expected to bow at Cannes next year.
