Miao Now: Long Day’s Journey Into Night’s Bi Gan Set to Shoot in 2022

As of late Chinese filmmaker Bi Gan has been keeping busy with one finger on the shutter button, and one eye in the viewfinder. We are just learning that he just completed a short film titled Le cœur du soleil brisé (translates into The Broken Heart of the Sun) and that he is poised to return behind the camera for his third feature film — and as early as 2022. Announced back in April as part of prod company Huace Pictures’ future slate, Gan’s untitled third film is still without a title, synopsis and cast but if we were the betting type we’d wager that we’ll be returning to some pocket of Guizhou and there’ll likely be some name players involved — especially after wowing Un Certain Regard auds with his Long Day’s Journey Into Night (the unique viewing experience came with instructions to put on 3D glasses for a remarkable one hour long take). If Gan begins shooting in Spring/Summer of 2022 this will try to secure a 2023 Palme d’Or comp slot.
