Apparently, the next subject Von Trier is gonna bum everybody out with is a horror movie set in Detroit.
How do you get Lars von Trier to write a horror movie for you? According to Kristian Levring, who will premiere his out of competition title ‘The Salvation’ at the Cannes Film Festival, the secret is to keep talking until von Trier gets sick of hearing about it.
“I’ve always thought that Lars would be able to do a fantastic horror movie,’ Levring told Lise Ulrich at Danish magazine Soundvenue. “And I’ve told him so many times throughout the years, and in the end he said: ‘I want you to stop talking about it, so I’ll write it for you instead.'”
