After his acclaimed Reprise got a small run here, Joachim Trier hits American shores for the first time in five years this coming spring, when Sony Pictures Classics will distribute his next acclaimed drama Oslo, August 31st. With that gap between his previous and current feature in mind, take this report from Cineuropa (via Twitch) as good news — they say that he’s almost finished writing his next film, Louder Than Bombs, with frequent collaborator Eskil Vogt. Norwegian producer Sigve Endresen will move forward with Bona Fide Productions.
More interesting — for myself — is the mention that Bombs will be his first English-language feature. The jump from native tongue to English isn’t a big deal for a lot of foreign filmmakers — it’s expected of many nowadays, even — but this will only be his third feature. Kind of soon, no? And, what’s more, this was supposed to be the follow-up to his first film, Reprise; that obviously didn’t happen as planned, but here we are. Whatever it is — no plot information is actually available — you can count me as interested. Shooting begins this autumn.
Are you interested in a new film from Trier? Does the whole “English-language” thing pique your curiosity?

The actioner stars Keanu Reeves as an ex-hitman who is crossed by the son of his old employer. When everything is taken from him, he decides to […]
