Valley of the Gods
Polish director Lech Majewski’s long gestating art-house sci-fi film Valley of the Gods should finally pop up somewhere in 2018. Majewki produced his most ambitious project to date alongside Filip Jan Rymsza, with co-producers Jan Harlan, Alyssa Swanzey Natalia Safran and Carla Rosen-Vacher. Majewski resumes working with his Field of Dogs (2014) DP Pawel Tybora, and amassed a noted international cast included Josh Hartnett, Charlotte Rampling, John Malkovich, Keri Dullea and John Rhys-Davies. Majewski’s handsome 2011 title The Mill & the Cross premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and 2004’s The Garden of Earthly Delights bowed at the Rome Film Festival.
Gist: Three distinct storylines intersect, including that of the richest man on earth (Malkovich), a Native American legend, and a writer (Hartnett) who has the power to alter reality.
Release Date/Prediction: Majewski began production in mid-2016 in Poland, and also shot in Italy and Utah. While it was long thought to premiere somewhere in 2018, we’re assuming Majewski may premiere in either Berlin or Rotterdam in 2019.
