Life During Wartime Back On!

According to an article in Wednesday's Variety, Todd Solondz has (finally!) found a financial home for his upcoming film, Life During Wartime!

Neither the article, or the company's website ( offer any hints as to what other films they might be working on.

According to the Variety piece, Mike S. Ryan and Derrick Tseng will still be producing the film - which will begin shooting this October in Puerto Rico - but Ted Hope's name was noticeably absent. The film is described here as a, "part-sequel, part-companion piece to his controversial dark comedy Happiness... which revolves around a group of struggling individuals. struggling [sic.] to find a place for themselves in an unpredictable and volatile world. The narrative is told through a series of intersecting love stories.; the [sic.] past haunts the present and imperils the future: ghosts circle and loom, trouble and console."
