Lars Von Trier is taking his distinct brand of controversial filmmaking to television.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Danish director will be writing and directing a series titled The House That Jack Built. Other than the title, details surrounding the project are sparse, but frequent collaborator and producer Louise Vesth described the project as a “high-end TV drama series” at the Venice Film Festival. Vesth is set to produce along with Peter Aalbaek Jensen for Von Trier’s production company, Zentropa.
Lauded and derided for the sexual and violent content in his films, Von Trier’s most recent works include Melancholia, Antichrist, and the two-part saga Nymphomaniac.
