The director is working on an 'unprecedented' series set for release in 2016
Lars von Trier is to direct an English language TV series with a “huge” international cast.
The acclaimed Danish director will begin working on the script for The House That Jack Built this autumn, with filming set to begin in 2016.
She said: “I’m happy to announce that the next Lars von Trier project will be a TV series in the English language. He has a really really good idea which I cannot tell more about right now.
“He wants a huge cast and from what heard I’m sure that it will be something that you have never seen before and you will definitely want to see again.”
Executive producer Aalbæk Jensen added that the series will be “without precedent” before telling the audience: “You better hold your breath.”
Plot details have not yet been released and are being closely guarded, Hollywood industry website Deadline reports.
The series will be developed in co-operation with Danish public broadcaster DR executive producer Piv Bernth, whose previous credits include The Killing and The Bridge.
Von Trier has previously worked on Danish TV series including The Kingdom (1994), Marathon (1996) and The Teacher’s Room (1994).
