Tilda Swinton, George MacKay and Stephen Graham will star in Joshua Oppenheimer’s Golden Age musical about the last human family, The End. Neon has acquired North American rights.
Production is scheduled to start in 2022 with Final Cut For Real’s Signe Byrge Sørensen and Oppenheimer (The Act Of Killing, The Look Of Silence) producing with Wild Atlantic Pictures and Match Factory Productions serving as co-producers.
The Danish Film Institute in Denmark and Film- und Medienstiftung NRW in Germany will support with financing. Jeff Deutchman negotiated the deal for NEON with the producers and UTA Independent Film Group. The Match Factory will handle international sales.
Swinton stars in Neon’s Memoria, the Colombian Oscar submission directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. MacKay broke out in 1917 and will soon be seen in Munich: The Edge Of War and Wolf, while Graham is in number one North American release Venom: Let There Be Carnage and recently starred in BBC Studios mini-series Time and BFI London Film Festival selection Boiling Point, which premiered at Karlovy Vary.
Neon is riding high after Julia Ducournau’s Titane scored the biggest debut for a Palme d’Or winner in 17 years at the weekend.
