ScreenDaily is saying that the next movie from Lars von Trier will likely be NYMPHOMANIAC, to shoot sometime next year. The story is said to follow “the erotic life of a woman from the age of zero to the age of 50” and will be an English language picture. What follows is hardly a surprise, as...with von Trier making a film called NYMPHOMANIAC...there's no way it's not gonna be a tad extreme.
The film’s subject matter (in particular, its treatment of youthful sexuality and graphic depiction of intercourse) could cause problems with censors. However, the Danish auteur is reportedly planning two versions - one a hardcore cut likely to feature scenes of penetration and a softer version that can be shown in more mainstream cinemas. Despite the likely graphic sexual content, the project is understood to be primarily dialogue-driven.
The film’s storyline will unfold in eight chapters. These have such titles as “The Western and Eastern Church” and “The Little Organ School.”

Von Trier's most recent feature release - the roundly disturbing, consistently unnerving, often disgusting, sometimes beautiful, and utterly unforgettable ANTICHRIST - is now streaming on Netflix and is available as a Criterion release HERE. His subsequent film, MELANCHOLIA, starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, and Stellan and Alexander Skarsgård - a movie which begins with the end of the world - has already hit in some territories and opens in the U.S. this November (Happy, Happy Holidays!).
