According to an article in Wednesday's Variety, Todd Solondz has (finally!) found a financial home for his upcoming film, Life During Wartime! A new production company called Werc Werk Works has taken on Solondz's film as one of their first projects. Neither the article, or the company's website (wercwerkworks.com) 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."
