4 years have already passed by because the launch of Mandy, which immediately turned a cult favourite, and now we lastly know what director Panos Cosmatos goes to do subsequent. The Hollywood Reporter broke the information that Cosmatos is teaming up with A24 and XYZ Movies to deliver us a science fiction fantasy movie referred to as Nekrokosm.
Particulars are being saved beneath wraps, however The Hollywood Reporter was capable of dig up the knowledge that Nekrokosm is described as being a “phantasmagorical fantasy nightmare” and is
set deep inside an odd galaxy the place two lovers are torn aside as they attempt to survive a malevolent invasion.
Cosmatos crafted the story with Maegan Houang, who’s now writing the screenplay. Houang was a workers author on the second season of the Starz sequence Counterpart, which handled “a gateway to a parallel dimension”.
A24 will likely be producing Nekrokosm alongside Nate Bolotin of XYZ Movies. A24 can be financing the challenge and can deal with the worldwide distribution. This marks the primary time Cosmatos has labored with A24, however XYZ Movies was concerned with each Mandy and his characteristic debut Past the Black Rainbow.
Since making Mandy, Cosmatos directed an episode of the Guillermo del Toro anthology sequence Cupboard of Curiosities for Netflix. That present is at the moment in post-production.
There’s not a lot to go on to construct hype for Nekrokosm in the meanwhile, however I’m certain many followers of Past the Black Rainbow and/or Mandy had been already bought on the challenge as quickly as they heard Cosmatos can be directing a “phantasmagorical fantasy nightmare”.
I can’t precisely say I’m a fan of his work, I couldn’t get into Past the Black Rainbow and Mandy didn’t work as effectively for me as I hoped it might, however I positively respect what Cosmatos did with these motion pictures and I’m glad to see he’s going to proceed doing his factor.
