American director Zach Snyder, author of Justice League, 300 Spartans and Army of the Dead, is preparing a new large-scale project for Netflix. “Rebel Moon” – as the picture will be called – is a fantastic action movie that is inspired by the films of the Japanese classic Akira Kurosawa and the popular Star Wars franchise by George Lucas. The filmmaker himself hopes that in the future he will build his own cinematic universe from this project.

The action of the picture will unfold in a peaceful settlement on the edge of the galaxy, which is in mortal danger due to the attacks of the Regent Balizarius – a villain and tyrant with a large army. The only one who can save the inhabitants is a girl with an unusual past, who will have to gather allies from all over the galaxy and unite their forces to fight an invincible enemy.

The idea was originally conceived by Snyder, along with his co-star in the movie 300 Spartans, Kurt Johnstad. And Shay Hatten (Army of the Dead) joined them to develop the full script. Zack will share the production chair with his wife, Deborah, and will be produced by their own company, Stone Quarry. Filming is scheduled to start next year.

Interestingly, Snyder’s previous work for Netflix “Army of the Dead” entered the top 10 most popular original projects, during the quarantine it was watched by more than 70 million viewers in just four weeks.

Pictures “Medea” by Alexander Zeldovich and “Gerda” by Natalia Kudryashova took part in the main competition of the film festival in Locarno. The Locarno International Festival ranks fourth in importance in Europe after Cannes, Venice and Berlin. It has been held for 73 years in a row and during this time has managed to earn a reputation as a film screening, where the films of eminent directors are on a par with the works of novice authors. This year, 17 films were selected for the main program, two of them are Worldn.

The painting “Gerda” tells about a young student Lera, who lives in a remote province. The girl works part-time at a local strip club to support her sick mother, and at night the heroine is haunted by strange dreams. For the main role, Natalya Kudryashova invited the non-professional actress Anastasia Krasovskaya, for whom “Gerda” became a debut in a big movie. Also involved in the film are Yuri Borisov (“Silver Skates”, “Crystal”), Darius Gumauskas (“War and Peace”), Yulia Marchenko (“The Germans”), Serafima Krasnikova (“Psycho”) and others.

“The picture is based on the history of modern Psyche, the Soul, which goes through difficult circles of life and makes a choice, looking for a way out of the impasse and routine, out of corporeality, out of the framework of life ritual to which we are all condemned. In some ways, Gerda is a reference to a well-known fairy tale, which is not accidental – we also have a kind of fairy tale, a materialistic fairy tale “, – Natalia Kudryashova

The second national film that will compete for the Leopard statuette is the drama Medea. In it, director Alexander Zeldovich (“Moscow”, “Target”) reinterprets the well-known ancient Greek myth about a woman driven to despair by the betrayal of her lover. The main roles in the film were played by Georgian actress Tinatin Dalakishvili (“Star”, “Fairy”) and Yevgeny Tsyganov (“Walk”, “Thaw”). The music for the film was written by the composer Alexei Retinsky, and performed by the orchestra under the direction of Teodor Currentzis.

“Medea” is the first metaphor of revolution known to me. Revolution is always inevitable, it always turns the victim into an executioner and devours its children. The riot has a feminine nature ”, – Alexander Zeldovich.

The Locarno International Film Festival will take place from 4 to 14 August in Switzerland.

The team of creators of the film “Judas and the Black Mission”, which received two awards at the last “Oscar”, announced work on a new film about political problems in America. Shaka King will act as a director, producer and co-writer of the future project. Co-stars Ryan Coogler, Charles D. King and actor Lil Rel Hoveri, who starred in Wayne’s Judas and the Black Mission, will also spearhead the production. The details of the plot have not yet been disclosed, but the authors say that the future picture will combine several genres at once and tell about the “American political uprising”.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this term refers to the events that took place during the last US presidential election. Then a crowd of supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol, as a result of which hundreds of people were injured and several people died, including police officers. Presumably, it is about these pogroms that Shaq King’s new film will tell.

Since the project is still in the early stages of development, filming start dates are unknown. Recall that King’s last film, in addition to the Oscar, received many other prestigious awards: BAFTA, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award, etc.
