Close your eyes and burst into flames

Lynch with friend...................................... .........Herzog eating his shoe.

This is a little off-topic but I just read a piece of exciting news. David Lynch and Werner Herzog, two of the few living geniuses of film, are making a movie together. Herzog will direct and Lynch will serve as executive producer. This was announced ages ago but according to some new reports the casting was recently completed and imdb now has the film's status as 'filming' with a release set to 2010. The title will be My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done and the story sounds appropriately fucked-up., involves a man killing his mother with a sword. Oh, but there's more: among the cast members are Brad Dourif, Grace Zabriskie, Chloe Sevigny, Willem Defoe, Udo Kier and Michael Shannon (who was excellent in the otherwise crummy Revolutionary Road). Very exciting.
