Melody C. Roscher & Craig Shilowich Take Creative Control on “Our Band Is Forever”

On the eve of the world premiere screening to Antonio Campos’ Christine and the soon to be launched theatrically Creative Control, producers Melody C. Roscher and Craig Shilowich have launched a new prod company in Wonder Club and have announced that Roscher will direct her feature debut. Deadline reports that their next venture will be Our Band Is Forever. We imagine there’ll be casting announcements sometime in ’16.

Gist: This revolves around a sequestered American family folk band attempting to tour in Bavaria.

Worth Noting: Melody C. Roscher’s first major cred is as producer on Henry Joost, Jody Lee Lipes’ 2010 film NY Export: Opus Jazz.

Do We Care?: Nashville meets National Lampoon meets Funny Games. We’re not sure what to expect in this debut — but this producer pairing have exquisite taste in film.
