Word had come out a while back that Swedish provocateur Lukas Moodysson had snagged cash to make his first English-language film, now titled Mammoth. That money has bought a good pair of leads: Michelle Williams and the teeny-tiny Gael Garcia Bernal top the flick as a troubled couple. Production starts next week in Thailand and will also shoot in the Philipines, Sweden and New York.
This is news that makes a new week easier to bear, especially while I’m checking the bullshit grosses of Saw IV. I dare any of the people who lined Lionsgate’s pockets this weekend to brave a double feature of Moodysson’s Lilya 4-ever and A Hole In My Heart. That’s real horror and terror right there; these dilettante Jigsaw fans don’t know what the fuck being scared really is.
