Danish director Lars Von Trier, best known for the brutal Dogville and slasher movie Antichrist, is turning his baleful gaze to science fiction. But fear not: the scenery won't consist of outlines and labels, and no genitals will be harmed.
As for the movie's plot? Von Trier only tells the Hollywood Reporter, "No more happy endings!" And adds that this film will "romantic, in a Lord Byron sort of way." (If he manages to get his sardonic Childe Harold on, there will be oodles of win.) And producer Peter Albaek Jensen adds that he doesn't foresee a repeat of Antichrist's most notorious scene (Spoiler alert!): "Jensen said he hoped no genitals would be cut off in Melancholia." [THR]
